Re: [Evolution] migration from Evo 1.4?

Hi Guys,
I just attempted the upgrade with a snapshot via red-carpet, and I got
the following failure:

[frank flynch ~]$ evolution-1.5 --force-migrate
asked to activate component_id
addressbook_migrate (1.4.0)
evolution-1.5: relocation error:
/usr/lib/evolution/1.5/components/ undefined
symbol: e_book_open

I assume that theres a problem with this snapshot? Should I download the
sources and build from them? 
any other suggestions?

Hi Folks,
Apologies if this is a RTFM, but I couldn't find any obvious info on
I'm currently using Evo 1.4 and I'm quite happy with it. I'm seriously
thinking about making the leap to 2.0. I'm wondering if there is any
risk involved in doing this. Will I loose any of my email, contacts,
filters, calander or any other data?
The only 'risk' is that you might not have enough disk space.  It will
check this (the check is unreliable in some earlier versions) and
warn, but otherwise it should work.  But if anything fails you can
just go back to 1.4 (before you add anything new to 1.5) and you wont
lose anything. 
If there is a list of manual steps that need to be followed can someone
point me in the right direction?
No, it is automatic. 
Does evo 1.5 silently import everything from 1.4, or do I need to run
some special import tool?
Yes it does it relatively silently (it shows progress bars). 
Is there a recommended way of installing Evo 1.5? should I just grab it
via a snapshot from red-carpet, or should I just bite the bullet and
build it from source?
If you aren't already building things from source i'd recommend
snapshots.  Like any snapshots the stability may vary from day to day,
so when you find one that works well stick to it.

Stability is generally good.  The mailer is better still I think,
although i'm a bit biased, and I don't really use the other parts much
- but going on the bug counts.
