I currently run evolution 2.2.3 on a group of about 100 computers with

attempted to upgrade to 2.8 on a test machine but run into major
dependency issues and serious scripting to get the configure program
to run.  So many that I spent 2 hours pointing the program to the
correct folders for qt and various dependencies and still haven't made
it through successfully.  Has anyone tried to do this before?  I
really am only interested in upgrading the Fedora 4 versions of
Evolution as I am phasing out the Fedora 2 installs.


You'll probably have to upgrade your GNOME/GTK+ libraries to something
fairly recent in order to get Evolution 2.8 to build.  The exact library
versions necessary to build a particular Evolution release are not
carefully tracked.  This is an open issue that I hope to correct soon.
