Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138694
Evolution freezes/crashes when migrating data from 1.4 to 2.0.2-3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
System upgraded from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora Core 3, keeping /home
partition with evolution files in ~/evolution. After started for the
first time, Evolution asked to migrate data (about 240 MB, mostly IMAP
accounts plus contacts, calendar and some tasks) and after a while it
freezed. I waited some hours but didn't come back. Trying to re-run
evolution freezed at the same point. Then I realized that a
~/.evolution file was made, so I renamed ~/evolution to
~/evolution.old so it didn't try to migrate. Evolution then started
correctly but my contacts/calendar/tasks where no migrated.
I found some bugs related to this in Evolution's bugzilla, at:
There seems to be a patch on this thread:
that seems to solve this bug (?), so I request it to be applied.
The direct URL for the patch is:
I used the new evolution test packages:
Used my OLD evolution/ directory and the migration finally worked :)
Now I have my calendar and my contacts again. I am happy.
Thanks for the feedback!
