Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443032
Evolution can't read backup created from Evolution in Fedora 8
Last modified: 2008-04-22 15:36:46 EDT
Description of problem:
If you make a backup in the Evolution in Fedora 8 and try to have Evolution in
Rawhade start from the backup nothing is transferred to Evolution in Rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make backup in F8.
2. Start Evolution in Rawhide and choose to import backup.
3. You continue with the default set-up process.
No setup or emails are transferred.
Setup and emails should be transferred.
I tested this and it worked fine for me. All settings and accounts restored.
Step 3 sounds suspicious. If you tell Evolution to restore from a backup, there
is no continuing with the default setup process. Evolution shuts down, unpacks
the archive, and restarts itself with everything restored and ready to go.
Resolving as NOTABUG.
