Re: [Evolution] contacts database problem

ok brief updat on my contacts disapearing problem.
They are back. however when you go to contacts the dont show up till you
click on the search button at top of viewing pane and click on show all.
then you can see them. some how it is defaulting to not showing the
contacts till you do that.

ok this is to damn weird. I recovered in hardcopy my addressbook by
uninstalling evolution thru redcarpet and reinstalling the preview
version. it saw them fine. I printed them out. then i uninstalled the
preview version thru redcarpet and then reinstalled the snapshot thru
redcarpet. everytime after shutting down evolution in this process i ran
killev. the first time i opened the snapshot of evolution back up my
addressess were there. and i could open them individually. i then shut
down evolution and restarted it and they were gone again. very weird. if
you have any questions or suggestions im still all ears.

PS at least i have my addresses :) and before anyone tells me i shouldnt
keep mission critacal info in a beta software, i allready know. :) lol
so sue me ;)

I use it every day for all my email and contacts and calendaring and i
love it. so to you guys who actually code on it. keep up the great job.
I would love one day to be able to go to some of my clients and replace
windows systems with linux boxes and this is a major step in that

Thanks Chris:
I did what you said and it recreated the addressbook.db file however it
recreated it with the wrong permissions. I then changed the permissions
to the old ones and  ran evolution. the contacts component crashes now
when i open it. im not sure what to try next.any more help would be

Also thank you Xav:
I tried your solution also, both before and after i did the above and it
did not work.
killev && killall wombat ...
actually killev seems to kill wombat  with out having to kill it
again any more suggestions would be welcome.

when i do file addressbook.db i get addressbook.db: Berkeley DB 1.85 (Hash, version 2, native 
i have read the faq and tried following the instructions there but keep getting an error

here is command i run : 
db_dump185 addressbook.db.backup | db_load addressbook.db
and here is error

It looks like addressbook.db already exists.

Try moving addressbook.db to addressbook.db.temp and then doing
db_dump185 addressbook.db.temp | db_load addressbook.db
