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.

Evolution contacts issues on OpenSolaris B131

Hi All,

So I had to start the entire install process of B131 again.

Once I had the system installed I did a restore of my evolution data, the contacts would not work, no problems, do what I did on Nevada, just go to my source store, rebuild and install evolution.

Not good, ended up with an nss issue I just could not get around, evolution crashing on start-up, spent about three hours trying to fix.

I've restarted the install process again, evolution contacts are still not correct, I'll have to find out what's really going on Monday.

I can at least rebuild the system from the external usb ZFS drive in a short period of time, I soft link my Documents to a directory on the USB ZFS drive, I backed up the old Nevada /usr/lib onto the USB ZFS drive also.

BTW, I did get my offer letter from Oracle today, I'll be saying "yes", I'm looking forward to new adventures, it's been awhile since I've work on an SQL DB.

I am feeling sad for the good friends I'm loosing, but hope we can keep in contact, and wish them the best.

Hopefully my neck muscles will now relax a little.
