I am having a problem with updating Evolution through Red Carpet. It downloads the update, acts like it is installing it, then when it says it is finished, and I click ok, it goes to a window that says I dont have any packages installed from this channel. I am running Red Hat 8.0, Evolution 1.2.2, and Red Carpet 1.4. Has anyone seen or of this problem?
Yes. I have had this problem, and discovered that what caused it was a corrupted RPM db. The fix I found is to delete the db lock files in /var/lib/rpm and run rpm --rebuilddb before you do any other rpm-related tasks. After I did that, Red Carpet was able to install things properly again. There's a reference with instructions on how to do it properly at http://www.rpm.org -- All private email sent with PGP encryption. Email for key.
