Well, I actually already tried to get that version (1.4.5-7) working and that is where I threw up the white flag of surrender.
I only got one of four dependency errors resolved.
When I try to install that particular version of evolution, I now am left with the following
[root@localhost i386]# rpm -ivh evolution-1.4.5-7.i386.rpm
/etc/security/selinux/src/policy/file_contexts/file_contexts: No such file or directory
error: Failed dependencies:
libgtkhtml-3.0.so.2 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7
libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7
libsoup-2.0.so.0 is needed by evolution-1.4.5-7
I already have the following libgtkhtml libraries and none of these will satisfy the
rpm script dependency requirements of the evolution rpm:
as well as this version of libsoup: # (don't you just love the names in linux?)
Trying to install the rpm packages which contain the revisions that the dependency
requirements stated in the errors always fail because of the newer versions already
installed on my system.
I'm curious to know why later revisions won't satisfy packages written needing earlier
revisions. Isn't later better, fuller, more error-free, more feature laden, etc? Why must
it insist on exact version correctness to work? I just need a little education here along
with some help to get evolution back on my system. (please)
So here is where I'm stuck and don't know how to fix.
P.S. While I'm asking for help, someone explain what all this new nooise I'm getting
about "/etc/security/selinux/src/policy/file_contexts/file_contexts: No such file or directory"
is all about. Something not set up right? Something I need to take care of?
P.P.S. One other area of confusion which I would like squared away in my mind is,
I can sometimes find library revision dependency levels satisfied in file names that
I Google for provided by packages that were made for Suse, Mandrake, or some other
distribution other than RedHat, or more specifically for Fedora. Am I correct to assume
that to use an RPM from one of these would be disastrous for me with a Fedora
