k, I got evolution 1.2.0 installed now. Using the tgz from dropline-sourceforge.
For those having problems with this:
from a fresh slack 8.1 installaltion upgrade to or install:
- gal 0.21
- gdk-pixbuf 0.19.0
- gtkhtml 1.1.6
- soup 0.7.4
(get them from linuxpackages.net)
Then I installed the latest dropline gnome but I'm not entirely sure this has to be done. As long as yer installing though, dropline gnome is nice enough so go ahead and do that
Then install evolution 1.2.0.
And voila, you're good to go.
