Re: [Evolution] Evolution 2.6.2 ... I just want to cry...

Thanks .. I've downgraded to the original FC5 rpms (rpm -Uvh
--oldpackage <list>) and everything is as it was, even calendar.  I wish
my company would use something other than Exchange for mail ...

There may be more, I've had to do this a few times now as I kept seeing
updates to evolution packages and trying them.

I'm having issues after upgrading with yum too.

Anyone know how to roll back to the previous version?

I have similar problems with evolution. My exchange connector was
working ok  with a few crashes every other day, until I installed 2.6.2.
After that the exchange portion didn't crash, but maybe that was because
every time I clicked into an exchange folder evolution would crash. I
did a yum install evolution* out of desperation and installed all the
debug and dev packages. So far no problems other than I can't seem to be
able to open any bodies shared calenders yet.

When I upgraded to Fedora Core 5 I got Evolution 2.6.1. The
exchange-connector was broken. Actually it was libsoup that was broken.
I stuck with it anyway, though. I found that if I restarted Evolution
often enough that it would eventually come up. It was very frustrating.

Several days ago libsoup was fixed and life was finally good! No more
crashes! On that same day 2.6.2 was also released but it had trouble
installing due to dependencies. My global address book was still broken
so I looked forward to the dependencies being resolved in hopes that not
only would it be stable but it would work like it used to before the

Well 2.6.2 went on and everything has gone down the drain again. Right
now, my machine is running at 100% busy doing what appears to be
nothing. If that were not the case then I would see it either filtering
or downloading and stalling forever. Attempts to close the application
gracefully fail. It simply ignores the fact that I click on the "X". I
want to scream.

It has gone from extremely bad to pretty good to absolutely unusable.
The progression should be from really good towards excellent. Not this
rollercoaster ride at the bottom end of acceptability.

Is there not some way to keep this from happening? I am a devoted user
but this is becoming intolerable.

It might be that you've got miss-matched versions of evolution and its
backend components after the upgrade (i.e. the backends are still the
ones running from 2.6.1).  Try doing 'evolution --force-shutdown' in a
terminal and restarting evo to see if it's any better.

I upgraded my FC5 installation with yum update (to evo 2.6.2) . I'm
also using exchange connector, and now I don't get any new mails! To
be more precise, the folder (Inbox) lists unread messages, but they do
not appear in the message pane. If I quit evolution and restart I get
those mails, but mails that arrive after that are just listed in the
number behind Inbox.

As fas as I can tell all my Evolution components are 2.6.2. I have
also restarted everything (and also rebooted).

How do I debug this?
