No need for applying the patch, fixed in upstream code... adding the external
bugzilla ref - http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264485

Hi Matt,

The Patch in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=65213&action=view seems
to be missing from the latest builds. Can you please apply it to the latest code

If you need any more info, please let me know.

Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2006-07-06 12:59:15 EDT
Done - evolution-2.7.3-8

Only two of the three hunks in the patch applied.  The third (plugs a memory
leak) is already fixed upstream.

Changing component from evolution-data-server to evolution.
Comment 11 A S Alam 2006-07-10 05:58:37 EDT
sorry, still string is replicated, test on following package

Comment 13 Matthew Barnes 2006-07-18 07:40:13 EDT

To apply the patch manually, do so from Evolution's root directory:

    $ cd evolution-2.7.4
    $ patch -p1 < evolution-2.7.3-replicated-cjk-input.patch

The -p1 option tells patch to ignore the first component of the path when
applying the patch-file (in this case, "evolution-2.7.3/").  This is what the
spec file does when automatically applying the patches.

Keeping the version in the patch-file helps us keep track of what version of
Evolution the patch-file was _really_ generated from, since the patch-file's
name in CVS does not always accurately reflect this.

Let me know if I misunderstood your question, or if you're still having trouble.

Comment 14 Mayank Jain 2006-07-18 09:06:40 EDT
Oh, yeah...

Just had a look at this line
%patch904 -p1 -b .replicated-cjk-input

I did knew what you just wrote, but probably missed this line. Thanks!

Btw, just found that you can saftely delete
evolution-2.7.2-preedit-gnome.bz-264485.patch & clean it up from the spec file
as it is already not being applied, its my old unaccepted patch.

Thanks :)
Comment 15 Matthew Barnes 2006-08-07 09:35:36 EDT
Mayank, any progress on this upstream?
