Re: [Evolution] strange changes

CVS = Concurrent Version System
afaik = "As Far As I Know"

CVS is where a program's latest/greatest resides.  I've never
used it but I believe you can go to Ximian's site and find a link
to it.  I could be wrong but I believe if you download from there
you will need to compile the source code (the standard
./configure ... make ... make install routine) rather than
install from rpm / apt / any prepackaged format.  It's not overly
hard but if you are as new as you claim, that may be something
you're not ready for.

Hope this clarifies some of your questions.

Good morning everyone,

Yesterday I ran Red Carpet to do an update of my system, I run
Evolution 1.4.4, I believe this was the same before the
update...however I did find a strange change in evo after

I occasionally enjoy sending html mail *sinful I know*
embedded images to friends and family....when I first put
RH on my
system I couldnt embed images no matter what I did, found
a work
around yada yada....then after an update I was able to
embed no

Since yesterdays update, evo has lost some menu items it
including everything in the 'insert' except 'attachment' 

My question is, when I updated yesterday could I have
screwed up evo
somehow, I use RedCarpet...And what info do you all need
here to
answer my questions better about how do I get back all my
menu items
including embedding images and that?...

Keep in mind I am NOT  a programmer, I am a neophyte to
Linux, just
took the leap from windows a few weeks ago.

So have patience with me and be gentle :)

Thanks in advance
