  If you are using Evolution from CVS, there is a FAQ in it now.  Please
check out the Troubleshooting section; it has an explanation of how to
upgrade your contacts db if it's version 1.85 and Evolution is compiled
against version 2.

For those of us not running evolution from CVS, but from the official RPMs,
how would we do this?
And is there any way for us to get the FAQ, without having to compile the

This depends on your OS and version.  If you have
evolution-0.10-ximian.1 on Red Hat 6 or 7, you should upgrade to
0.10-ximian.2 if it's available.  (I've made packages, but I'm not sure
if they're available yet.  (I'm not using RH.))

Other than this, you should be fine to upgrade.  I in fact discovered a
simpler way than has been described before.  Try this:

cd ~/evolution/local/Contacts/
cp addressbook.db addressbook.db.backup
db_upgrade addressbook.db

See if your contacts reappear.  Once you're satisfied that they're
available and safe, you can delete the backup at your leisure.
