Re: [Evolution] [solved]contact list hangs

Opening the Contacts folder would hang evo before as I posted, works
just fine after re-indexing. You tell me ...?

How on earth did that fix the contact list?  It doesn't use these
indices, they're purely for email.

Thanks , that did it - one pointer for others, the re-indexing takes
quite awhile with no visible signs of activity so it is easy to assume
it has failed - jut relax - get a coffee etc

I remember seeing a post on the list here that there are index files
that can be deleted to let evo re-index itself. I want to try that but
can't remember the file name or the post.

hi chris,

should be the following:

first shutdown evo entirely by this command:
  $ evolution --force-shutdown
then remove the index files:
  $ find ~/evolution/local/ -name "mbox.*" -exec rm -f {} \;

normal disclaimer: be careful, back up before you do and so on... ;-)
