    Most likely, another one of your plugins or themes is defining a class called "Akismet", which is probably not the best idea.

    What plugins/themes are you currently using? Disabling them one-by-one and checking whether the error still occurs would tell you which one is the culprit, or you could paste a list here and I can do some investigation.
