Did you read the digikam documentation on how to configure it? It uses SQLite as a data repository. You should be able to move it to the data drive. Here is a link to the digikam handbook as a PDF: http://docs.kde.org/development/en/e...am/digikam.pdf
This is from the installation section:
% export WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5=1 % export KDEDIR=KDE_installation_dir_on_your_system % export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/path/to/installation/lib/pkgconfig" % make -f Makefile.cvs % ./configure % make % su % make install
