[Evolution] Re: red carpet/evolution with RH

This is where Red Carpet is a big win.

I've avoided the Ximian Gnome install because it will play havoc with a
future upgrade of Red Hat. When 7.3 came out, the release notes made it
clear that an upgrade from 7.2 would probably break if Ximian Gnome
packages were in place. So I backed out the few Ximian packages I had
before the upgrade, and then reinstalled those I really wanted.

If you install Evo using Red Carpet, it will take care of getting
exactly the prerequisite Ximian packages you need, and no more.

Sorry to be dim, but I think it pays to make certain on this point.  
If I'm using RH 7.3 fresh, and then use Red Carpet to upgrade to a 
later version of Evolution, everything will be OK?  No mail folders or 
their contents will be lost?  

The reason I'm gun shy is that I tried just this with AbiWord, and now 
I have a non-functioning program.  I even tried to uninstall it in
and reinstall from the RH site, but no go.  It's not *that* important to
so I never tried to fix it; I always just assumed that Red Carpet had
something not included with the RH rpm.  But it's left me reticent to
redcarpet for any channel other than RH 7.3.
