Re: [Evolution] RedHat 7.2 (off topic a bit)

Last night I tried to install Ximian desktop on a fresh test system of
Red Hat 7.2.
Why on earth would balsa, among a few other apps, be listed as a
necessary removal to install Ximian desktop?
Is Ximian trying to dictate what app to use? I currently feel there are
shades of MS appearing.
Hopefully I am wrong on this, but again what reason would balsa need to
be removed, no information was offered as to why?
I think an alternative method for Ximian install needs to be done.
Give a sold reason as to why an app(s) needs to be removed, and also
offer an alternative choice so that the listed app does not have to be
removed. The app in question could be vary valuable to the user.
For the most part I like the Ximian desktop and Evolution, (I also play
with Balsa), though there are somethings with both items I would like to
see changed, in particular the way Ximian mucks with the menu systems,
leave them alone and just include rather then replace them.

No, that's not it.   It doesn't care what's in the UserAgent header.  It's
just a shell script.

No, I've looked at the installer and the error I get is output by a
function called bail_os which is supposed to happen if:

* The output of uname -s is anything other than Linux or SunOS
* The output of uname -m is anything other than ppc, i[3456]86, or sun4
* or the distro is not in its list.

And of course RH 7.2 is not in the list.  Even the manual installer for RH
7.2 (referenced from at
didn't work.

Did anyone at Ximian actually try to install Ximian Gnome from scratch on
a fresh install of 7.2 before saying the installer supports 7.2?  I really
would like to get Evolution back up and running.
