Description Chris Lee 2004-10-23 00:48:29 UTC
Description of problem:
On a clean install of Rawhide on IA64, with a pre-existing user profile from a
previous version (eg 1.4) of evolution, launching evolution will start the
automatic profile conversion process and also summon several error dialogs from
the realm of the evolution-data-server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into GNOME
2. Launch evolution on an account with an old profile
3. Smack the error dialogs down like mosquitoes and watch as evolution
completely fails to convert your old data to the new hotness

Actual results:
An error dialog notifying the user of the evolution-data-server crash pops up
repeatedly, and the conversion process fails completely.

Expected results:
The e-d-s process should not crash, and the conversion of the data should be
flawless and perfect.

Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-04 22:02:32 UTC
The e-d-s crash stuff looks like a duplicate of the "GType upper
32-bit-stripping" described in bug #136914, so I'm going to mark this
as a dup of that bug.

Though I haven't actually tested the migration code on ia64, so you
may want to test it once the fixed package is available, and reopen
this bug if there are further problems.
