Re: [Evolution] can't access address book

You will need at least evolution 2.0.4 (i.e. not yet released, and cvs doesn't even have the patches yet) or evolution 2.1.3 for it to work very well on a 64 bit machine.  I only got an amd64 box last week to debug some of these issues. 

It may be that the db file format changes between architetures too, in which case you may need to do more than just drop the .db file in - but it may not be an issue too.

As for your clearing .evolution, because we use this gconf/registry rubbish, you'll have to also clear the registry settings for the addressbook 'sources' to really clear the settings, that is why the old ones you created are still 'visible but not there'.

The email client works fine, but selecting the contact list (local
computer) brings up this error:

"Error loading addressbook.

"We were unable to open this addressbook.  Please check that the path
exists and that you have permission to access it.

I created a new dummy address book, but once created I received the same
error when I tried to access it.

I carefully went through the directories in ~/.evolution but couldn't
find anything out of place.  I renamed ~/.evolution to something else
and reinstalled.  Doing this created a new ~/.evolution directory, but
selecting the contact list brought up the same address book names, and
the same message.  So I'm missing a directory somewhere with information
in it.

I have a _lot_ of contacts wrapped up in this book.
