Re: [Evolution] Mandrake 7.2, Gnome & Evolution

I actually tried the Redhat 6.2 snapshots and got it to work rather
nicely.  the only 2 problems that I found are the snapshots are from Jan
30th and in my version at least, none of my mail filters work.  I'm
using an IMAP Mandrake 7.2 server to hold my mail and I connect to it
with my laptop. I have had any lost mail yet! :-)

This weekend I am going to download the source snapshots for redhat 7
and rebuild the rpms for my machine to see how that works. 

I can't use the current prebuilt rpms form the Redhat 7 directory
because they want GLIBC 2.2 and Mandrake 7.2 is GLIB 2.1.

I think rebuilding the rpms might be easier than trying to upgrade to

I guess I'll know soon enough!

I run Evo 0.8 on LM 7.2.

You need to do the helix-update FIRST.

Then update Evo.

For me, Evo complained about dependencies with only 1 package - a
perlGTKHTML-something-or-other package. It'll tell you the exact name.

I uninstalled that 1 development package - which wasn't used by anything; I
think LM installs it by defauilt, just in case. Then I re-ran the Evo 0.8

All installed fine.

Haven't been brave enough to try the nightly snapshots (there STILL aren't
any LM ones - hint, hint :-), but I'm told that MANUALLY installing the RH
6.2 snapshots are supposed to work. Me, I don't want to have to go to all
the trouble of switching clients again, if I break Evo. So I've been holding
off. Plus, I heard at LWE, that 0.9 is "hopefully" due with the next 2-3
