Description of problem:
After upgrading to version 1.0.8 evolution hangs when trying to contact my imap
folders. If I try to close it, it will hang on the message box
"evolution is now exiting..." and I have to explicity kill all evolution-mail
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: nothing happens... I only see "contacting imap server server"
on the status bar
Are you using an ssl connection to the IMAP server? Just found the same problem,
the new 1.0.8 build has no ssl options, and silently removes the option to use
ssl from your old config files.
Yes, sorry I forgot to specify it. I have a courier-imap server with only imaps
and pop3s enabled
I've seen this problem as well. Looking at the spec file from the source RPM,
it appears that it has the wrong path for the nss and nspr include files. I
think it should be /usr/include/nss and /usr/include/nspr instead of
/usr/include/mozilla-1.0.1/nss and /usr/include/mozilla-1.0.1/nspr. I'm doing a
rebuild of the package now to see if this fixes it for me.
*sigh* Same version of mozilla, headers in different places.
Updated package built and available for now from
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/evolution/7.3/ until it gets through being
requalified by QA.
Fixed in 1.0.8-9.7x.1
