Bug Description

(Originally filed to bugs.kde.org, see URL for details).

Akregator package 3.4.92 for KDE 3.5beta2 is broken in the following way: Akregator needs backends for storage
of feeds. Default backend is metakit backend.

However, at least those files are missing in the package:

The Akregator package for KDE3.5beta2 is effectively broken in kubuntu, but the shared files of the metakit backend
exist in the libkcal2a package, BUT not in the right place (/usr/...), they are stored (??) in /tmp/usr/..., I just
copied the missing files in the right places in the /usr/... hierarchy, and akregator is working fine without a single
crash (since yesterday). I will send this comment to the kubuntu devs.
I recompiled the kdepim (kubuntu)sources locally, and got the same wrong directory /tmp/usr in the libkcal2a package
which makes it completely broken. Why are so many files stored in /tmp/usr/... and not in /usr/... ?
