Evolution, error with Addressbook

I've just installed Gnome 2.8 on my Suse 9.1 pro system using the ulb packages found at the usr.local.bin site. With it I installed Evolution 2.0.

I get an error whenever I try to access an address book which states "We were unable to open this addressbook. Please check that the path exists and that you have permission to access it." I've checked the file permissions into ~/.evolution/addressbook/local/system/ and verified they're all set to 755.

I thought perhaps it just didn't find a needed file (the directory was empty), so I attempted to create a new addressbook using Evolution's ui. Unfortunately, while evolution created a new directory for the new addressbook in ~/.evolution/addressbook/local/ (which also was empty, no files) and did add the new addressbook to the list of books in the evolution ui, I would get the same error when trying to access that one as well.

Any attempts to delete the newly created addressbook would result in an error as well.

Any ideas where to go from here? Here's some output in the terminal when I attempt to access an addressbook...
in e_book_response_open
in async_open_response
(evolution:22266): eab-widgets-WARNING **: EABView at present does not support multiple writes on the "source" property.
