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.
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.
sorry, still string is replicated, test on following package
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.
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.
Mayank, any progress on this upstream?
