OK Knudfl ... much appreciate ur help. I have downloaded libsoup and evolution rpm's .... changed the repository line in 'sources.list' [commented out the active one] and attempted to install GNOME-Phone from that repos .. but now get...
" Depends: libical.so.0 but it is not installable"
So then tried installing the rpm's [which i downloaded from the link u gave me] via terminal with these results:
installing libsoup tells me this:
package libsoup-2.4.1-1pclos2007 (which is newer than libsoup-2.2.104-1pclos2007) is already installed
and won't allow install of Evolution rpm due dependency:
error: Failed dependencies:
libsoup-2.2.so.8 is needed by evolution-data-server-1.12.3-1pclos2007.i586
Should i revert to libsoup-2.2.104 ?? How? OMG ... feel i am in too deep?
Sorry bout this but all i want to do is get phone software that is close to Nokia Win Suite [WAMMU doesn't really do it for me ] and then i will be virtually all done in migrating .... instead of first becoming an Linux Tech *smile* .... there is plenty of time for that after i give WINdoze the flick.
So just want to install GNOME-Phone to evaluate it. I may find it doesn't do the job as i expect either, in which case I suppose i will need WINE and just install Nokia Win Suite under Linux .... BUT i want to get completely away from WINdoze ... and would prefer NOT to install WINE.
[Don't u just hate compromise *LOL*]
Thank you for ur patience ... it is very much appreciated *smile*
