--- Comment #80 from Peter <> ---
In view of the deepening hassles, I gave up on digiKam 4.x. All versions that I
tried crashed out on memory overflow during face detection as well as on face
tagging as described above. 

So, installed Linux Mint 18 (which also came with a version 4 digiKam) and then
got digiKam 5.1 from philip5/extras. Now face tagging works without the memory
overflow, great! This is very exciting and I have high hopes that digiKam will
be a very useful tool for managing my photo collection (when I learn to drive
it properly).

Face detection by v5.1 works, mostly.  I've had a couple of crashes with face
detection, but I haven't worked out the circumstances. I haven't tried face
recognition, denoted as 'experimental'.
