Question Evolution install problem

I used software update to try and install evolution. After downloading i get a error message that reads ( Conflicts were detected: Gnome-Spell = 0.5 is needed by evolution 1.2.4-1.1.mdk.
Install aborted)
How do I correct this so I can install evolution?

Well, like the error states, you need gnome-spell. Try searching on or google and install the version it calls for..

I went to rpm find and am not sure about which one to get. Im using mandrake 9.1. The gnome-spell listed for mandrake is gnome spell .04. Is this the one I am to download?

Try downloading the Red Carpet utility from Ximian. That will allow you to download any of the Ximian tools and it will handle any dependency issues.

You many end up downgrading certain packages though.
