Evolution crashes while migrating folders to sqlite
Last modified: 2009-10-23 12:16:28 EDT
Description of problem: The F10 version of Evolution crashes when it tries migrate folders from the earlier version of Evolution. It looks like it's using an initialized size value when it attempts to allocate memory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Evolution on F10
(evolution:22123): camel-WARNING **: Cannot load summary file: '/home/bjrosen/.evolution/mail/local/Chassis.sbd/Agilent.ev-summary': No such file or directory
(evolution:22123): camel-WARNING **: Cannot load summary file: '/home/bjrosen/.evolution/mail/local/Chassis.sbd/HiQ.ev-summary': No such file or directory
GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:136: failed to allocate 32026589200 bytes
This is being worked on upstream:
Still the same issue with 2.24.4-1.fc10.

This one is rather urgent for me; my wife has a ton of email in Evolution, I upgraded to Fedora 10 not knowing about this bug, and the mail cannot be converted. I'm surprised it is priority: low.
I could not move to Fedora-10 because of this bug. I'm really surprised that both Fedora and Gnome folks are not interested in this bug that much. This is a high priority issue that blocks migration from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10.
I have 8+ GB e-mail...
Actually, there was done some work by upstream people, see . As they do not have some exact test data, it makes things harder.
What if you go to File/Backup settings and do a backup, then do a fresh install, or at least remove the folders before the upgrade. Then do a File/Restore settings and see if that works? You can even copy your folders or back them up just in case so at least you have a copy if it fails.
