I have not installed mysql server.  Akonadi depends on mysql-server-core and 
installed it  when kde was installed in the first place.
I had not  installed mariadb before cause i was  not sure if that will break 
akonadi .  

Thanks for the reply. 
I continued with the installation of mariadb 5.2 . No problem appeared .
