B131 evolution contacts fixed

Hi All,

 So under Nevada I built my own Evolution version, I included openldap and weather, which we turn off.

I'd backed up my Evolution before blowing away the hard drive and installing OpenSolaris B131.

I think my contacts problem was that they had been written out in OpenLdap format.

I had a csv version of my contacts, so I did a little brain surgery on Evolution, deleting addressbook from .evolution and .gconf/apps/evolution, then did a restart.

Evolution on the first time up after the restart creates a personal addressbook, which I imported my contacts into, then created Work and imported again.

So now my Evolution is happy happy again.

You seem to be one of the few people actually using Evolution on OpenSolaris, do you e.g. see bugs like:

Hi,

I've never successfully got the Sun ldap gateway to work, that's why I was building Evolution myself, adding Openldap, it's to do with the security we use.

Evolution 2.28.2 is very stable.

It has lots of features other parts of gnome can use, but we turn off.

In the gnome panel which I customize, --enable-eds gets you tasks, calendar and weather in the clock applet.

I was also playing with opensync which allows syncing to mobile devices.
