I'm using When I look at the evolution snapshot
channel I see the following packages:


That's it. No plain old evolution package. Am I being dense here? Is
there no basic package named something like "evolution"?

There should be an "Updates" tab for software that is currently
installed but for which a newer version is available. "Available
Software" (which I suspect you're looking at) is the software which is
available and which you *don't* have installed.  You don't need rc-
openssl or -devel packages to run the software (though they're useful if
you're trying to compile it).

I notice that if I go to the Ximian Evolution channel there's a whole
bunch of 6.1 packages, but none of those say "evolution" either...

The "6.1" bit is part of a revision.  It's used to distinguish different
builds of the same version.  If the current stable non-snapshot version
of Evolution is installed, "evolution" will only appear in the
"Installed Software" tab.

2) Along a parallel track, it might be useful to know what conflicts
it's reporting.  This version should be a drop-in replacement for the
current Evolution package.

First mistake: rpm -i is really only useful for kernels.  For anything
that isn't a kernel, you almost certainly want rpm -U.  This is most
especially true for software that you already have installed in some

Second mistake: you'll probably need assorted gal and gtkhtml updates as
well.  Trying to install packages one at a time often doesn't work well,
especially when the software in question has or satisfies dependencies.
Red Carpet is the easiest way around such things, once you get past the
