Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Contacts-Evolution
2. Add a remote LDAP address book (New->Address book, name it Redhat, server
ldap.devel.redhat.com, port is the default (389), never use secure connection,
anonymous login, click "Find possible search bases" and select
"dc=redhat,dc=com", Search scope Sub).
3. Right click "Redhat" LDAP address book and select "Save As Vcard"
Evolution get crashed
Hmm, the new address book does not show up for me after I click OK in the "New
Address Book" dialog. I've tried setting this up in the past and had the same
Unable to reproduce this yet since I can't get to step 3.
I was able to go through all steps on evolution-184.108.40.206-3.fc6, no crash
appeared. The whole list gets a little long to download, while evo is freezed
and doesnt repaint :-) but i was able to save the vcf, no crash.
matt, can you take another look at this?
There is only one thing which changed, in the search bases of the LDAP server,
there is other name, "dc=devel,dc=redhat,dc=com". But it didn't matter.
I tested this on three FC versions:
FC5 evolution-2.6.0-1 evolution-data-server-1.5.92-1
FC6 evolution-2.8.3-2.fc6 evolution-data-server-1.8.3-6.fc6
FC7 svn trunk (evolution 2.11.2 evolution-data-server 1.11.2)
and it never crashes, it only freeze for about 2 minutes (for me), as Michal said.
Sounds like this can be closed. Feel free to reopen if the same crash occurs on
Fedora 8 or later.
