Evolution, connector on Debian
Got Debian installed at work (woot!) and now trying to get Ximian Evolution connecting to the Microsoft exchange server.

The story so far:

Installed Woody, then upgraded to Sid
Downloaded red carpet - says my system is not supported (Woody should be, not sure why Sid isn't?)
Downloaded ximian connector.deb file, try installing with dpkg -i ximian-connector_1.2.2-1.ximian.1_i386.deb
Had some dependenices problems I sorted out.
Got as far as ximian-connector depends on libsoup3 (>= 0.7.11); however: Version of libsoup3 on system is 0.7.10-3.
apt-get has problems upgrading soup, so I d/l the .7.11 tarball and install from source. Seems to work fine.
run ldconfig to update libraries

Now, when I try the dpkg command again, I get the same error - libsoup3 is the wrong version. I assumed I just needed to change a symlink in /usr/lib or somewhere, but this is all I could find...

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root          23 Mar 12 12:08 ->
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root        2892 Jan 26 02:58
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root          16 Mar 12 12:08 ->
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root      133168 Jan 26 02:58

So, now I'm stuck! How do I tell my system that I have libsoup3-0.7.11, and where is it?

(Note also tried apt-get install red-carpet, and ximian-connector, but got same problems there).

Give my own answer again - has to be Woody! Worked fine on a fresh install.
