Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running the same setup without any problems. The difference must be configuration or hardware. Let's start with the former. How did you install RH 8.0, what desktop are you using and how did you install Evolution?

I'm using Gnome, and I have upgraded both Mozilla (to get the nicer fonts) and Evolution (when 1.2 came out).
Originally posted by mhearn Have you fiddled with the Mozilla installation? Clicking links normally runs a script called html-helper i think in redhat 8, if for some reason that isn't setup correctly the browser won't start.
Make sure Mozilla itself starts correctly first of course. There's also a config file in /etc (sorry, don't remember it's name) which controls which browser is used by default
Okay, Gnome is good--did you buy the Red Hat CDs or burn them yourself? If you burned them, were there any problems? Also, is it safe to assume that you followed Ximin's instructions for installing Evolution?

Burned the disks myself and followed the only instructions that I saw for upgrading Ximian - basically download and install the rpm files.
From another post, I found a problem similar to yours. The extract of it follows:

Ah, this is exactly the information I needed. Modifying that file
appropriately causes links to open in the browser of my choice. Many
I just opened a terminal up and typed what he said. I didn't need to be logged on as root or give any special path. My guess is when you do and compare it with this example, you'll see what is missing. If you're not sure, post the results and we'll see what changes we can offer.
Addition: In re-reading my post, this could be pretty confusing. In the example above you want to open a terminal and type this command:
cat basically displays the contents of a file. For more on it, type:
.gnome is a hidden folder. Gnome is the file. Don't forget that Linux is case sensitive. As I said, if you open it and it doesn't make sense, copy the output from the cat command and post it. Sorry if there was any confusion.
I'm having the same link problem in Evolution 1.4 as described above however I can't find the file you are reffering to. I looked in my ".gnome" folder but I didn't see the "Gnome" file that I was supposed to edit. Am I missing something? Is there another way to fix this issue?
