Hello, I think we have some Evolution packagers around here, so let me draw your attention to a problem that a SyncEvolution user recently had (see ).
He upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10/Evolution 2.12, but still had a SyncEvolution binary around which depended on the older libedataserver1.2-7 from Evolution 2.10 (or 2.8). That library was not removed during the upgrade (not sure exactly why), which led to rather obscure error messages when starting SyncEvolution: (process:7164): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: instance of invalid non-instantiatable type `(null)' (process:7164): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_data: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed (process:7164): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid uninstantiatable type `(null)' in cast to `ESourceGroup' (process:7164): e-data-server-CRITICAL **: e_source_group_peek_sources: assertion `E_IS_SOURCE_GROUP (group)' failed 21:07:48 GMT -0700 [ERROR] - calendar: not found: Cumples' IMHO it would be nice if the libedataserver1.2-9 packaged conflicted with libedataserver1.2-7 so that users who upgrade are notified that they need a SyncEvolution which is compatible with 2.12, either because their package manager knows that SyncEvolution depends on libedataserver1.2-7 or when SyncEvolution fails to start with a missing library error message. Note that I also ran into problems starting Evolution 2.6.3 after running Evolution 2.12 in the same account; I had to reset my gconf data to get 2.6.3 running again (more on that in another email) - I'm mentioning it here because it seems related. In case anyone is interested, because binary incompatibilities with Evolution releases require different SyncEvolution binaries I have gathered that information in .  http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1818718&group_id=146288&atid=764733  http://www.estamos.de/projects/SyncML/Compatibility.html#Evolution -- Bye, Patrick Ohly -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.estamos.de/ _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
