Re: [Evolution] migration from Evo 1.4?

make sure it updated evolution-data-server too.  tho i would have thought dependencies would do that.

it might just be a bad snapshot - wait for the next one before trying cvs, that can be a pita and take ages.

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?
