What versions of glib2 and libglade do you have installed?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-11-14 17:50:39 UTC
Whoops, sorry -- libglade2, not libglade?

Comment 5 marty diamond 2003-11-26 18:30:03 UTC
Probably a minor detail but Platform is:  i686
NOT i386 as I first reported.

After backing up essential data and config on this effected FC1 I did
a _clean_ install of FC1.  Copied my existing ~/evolution directory
into my new regular user account directory and launched Evo.  The
Evolution 'Contacts' function no longer crashes Evo.  I can now
open/edit/save the Evo contacts list and Bug#110136 is no longer an issue.

Side note:  Experience in the past with the windows OS had taught me
that OS updates where always problematic and not to be attempted.  My
_upgrade_ from RH9 to FC1 was an experiment that FAILED.  The FC1
update functionality is _flawed_ and should be avoided as well.
