Umm, I think you wanted evolution, not evolution-bogofilter. Moving to that package.

Update to f8 please.

I've updated to f8 because I'm suffering this bug in upgrade from f7 to f8. 
This is a real show stopper, any workarounds would really help.

1 Backup up evo folders as per:
   1. ~/.evolution/
   2. ~/.gconf/apps/evolution/
   3. ~/.gnome2_private/Evolution
2 Upgrade f7 to f8
3 Restore evo folders
4 On first opening evo, evo presents Startup Assistant - even though all old
files/folders are available

Followed advice here:
http://www.go-evolution.org/FAQ#How_can_I_completely_backup_evolution.3F and
also initially did a straight copy of same folders - no luck on either count.

Hi Morgan, does that advice in evolution-list helped you?

Comment 4 Milan Crha 2008-02-11 19:19:19 UTC
Setting needinfo and F8 per last two comments.
