Re: [Evolution] Evolution Status

Could someone post _all_ of the packages and their version requirements for
me? I've gotten all the way through the configure script reqs but now the
makefile wants some stuff and I really don't know how to read it correctly.
My console (gnome-termnial) doesn't have a buffer big enough to post the
error here. 
I did compile Evolution a bit ago but now it wont. I did respwan the autogen
and I re-auto-configured it. But it's not working.

I stood there attention to the west.
Her eyes were green.
The sky was blue
She turned to me
She says "I can't see?"
I says "See what?"
"I can't see the sun" she says.
So I turned to the left,
And took one step to the south.
Now that's something I'll regret.

Ok, I got evolution to compile. Next question: how much funtionality
should I be seeing? I get the main gui screen, but there's nothing in
any of the menus except for file, and the toolbar shortcuts don't do
anything. Given the amount of stuff that gets compiled, and what it
looks like, I expected more, or am I expecting too much?

You need recent versions of lots of Gnome packages - I had to install
ORBit 0.5.1, and bonobo, gdk-pixbuf, gnome-print & gtkhtml from CVS.
(I also upgraded to gnome-libs 1.0.58 but I don't know if that matters.)
Otherwise the Bonobo components dump core on start-up so you don't
see anything.

I can now see the mail component (which even lists messages if you
place an mbox-format file in ~/evolution/folders/inbox), and the
calendar and contacts component (which don't seem to work yet.)

A lot of functionality hasn't been integrated with the shell yet.
And there's still a lot to do.
