With the update to KDE 4.8.4 Kmail is rendered useless. If I try to forward a message or reply to one it crashes with a segfault (11). This problem occurred also in Arch and the problem was fixed with an update to soprano. Has anyone else had this, and if so, know of a fix?
It’s a known issue - well reported on in the Mailing List
I don’t use Kmail, sorry.
I’m sure it will get fixed, but no one seems in a rush to get it sorted from what I see.
'found the mailing lists. Sorry for the noise. Remedy to avoid the crash: disable nepomuk.
If you disable nepomuk, do the suggestions from the addressbook work in kmail when you start typing an address?

I have a problem that must be related to yours. On 12.2 Beta1 with kmail
4.8.4 (KDE 4.8.4) anytime I select Message → new message or message to
mailing list kmail GUI just goes away. No seg fault message. If I boot
kmail from command line it tells me it cannot access outbox. My 12.1
system works because I have not updated to 4.8.4 (running 4.8.3)
I thought kmail (akonadi) could not run with nepomuk disabled?
Soon as I can reboot I will try it and see if kmail2 runs on 12.2. My
12.2 hardware is same as listed below except for the disk its on and I
have not been able to install Nvidia driver. 12.2 is running grub2 dual
openSUSE 12.1(3.1.10-1.9-desktop x86_64)|KDE Platform Version
4.8.3 (4.8.3) “release 504”|Intel core2duo 2.5 MHZ,|8GB
Since you’re referring to 12.2 Beta, please post about it in the Prerelease-Beta forums.
The root cause of the segfaults in kmail 4.8.4 and gwenview in KDE 4.8.4 is soprano.
Using the packages out of the unstable repository cures the issues.
