Bug Description

I'm using Kubuntu 14.04.2 and I am having trouble removing the MySQL package because akonadi-server depends on akonadi-backend-mysql, so when I remove that package the entire KDE goes away.

I can't just change akonadi to use SQLite because I still can't remove the akonadi-backend-mysql. Isn't there a way to allow removing mysql-server without removing akonadi, or remove akonadi without removing the entire KDE?

Thanks.

What's the actual problem with mysql? We only depend on mysql-server-core, which is only the core data files, not the actual system service. So if you use a different akonadi backend you won't have a running mysql server, just the files lying around.

This dependency does not allow me to install another MySQL, such as the MySQL from the official APT repository (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/repo/apt/). Just adding the repo and installing the mysql-community-server removes the entire KDE.

Ok. Our dependency on mysql is indeed too explicit there. I'll see what we can do.
