Read post #2 and follow the link ...
( The missing files are in the package shown here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-0-a-873730/#4 )

... And a separate package with the libdbus-glib files is here
https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B7S25...Nnb0E&hl=en_US
> x48-libdbus-glib-0.73-1.i386.rpm
Providing /usr/evolution28/lib/ libdbus-1.so.3 libdbus-1.so.3.4.0
libdbus-glib-1.so.2 libdbus-glib-1.so.2.1.0

> > # rpm -Uvh x48-libdbus-glib-0.73-1.i386.rpm
