Upgrade Evolution - Lose pervious setup.
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
When evolution is upgraded previous setup is removed. This make evolution
useless as a viable package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Upgraded FC6 to FC7 Test4.
Steps to Reproduce:
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:
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:
also initially did a straight copy of same folders - no luck on either count.
See emails here:
Hi Morgan, does that advice in evolution-list helped you?
Setting needinfo and F8 per last two comments.
