Check if you have any mysql processes (I think on Kubuntu they are called
mysqld-akonadi) running under your user account.

Stop them and then try restarting Akonadi, e.g. akonadictl restart

Thanks, Kevin, what is safe to pkill?

karmic1@kubuntu:~$ ps aux | grep -i mysqld-akonadi

I'd say all of them.
Try an Akonadi shutdown first, e.g. akonadictl stop
If Akonadi's control process has still control over one of them, it will kill
them.

Cheers,
Kevin
