Evolution Exchange Connector broken - FC5 Updates

If you updated your system recently and your Evolution Exchange Connector no longer works you can downgrade and make it work again:

Code: Select all

# apt-get install evolution=2.6.1-1.fc5.2 evolution-connector=2.6.1-1.fc5.1 evolution-data-server=1.6.1-1.fc5.2 evolution-webcal=2.4.1-3.2 gnome-panel=2.14.1-1.fc5.1
Then add a line to the RPM section of your /etc/apt/apt.conf to prevent evolution from upgrading until the broken packages are fixed.

Code: Select all

    Hold { "^evolution"; "^gnome-panel"; };
It seems to try and download all the public folders from the Exchange server which could be *extremely* large if you work in a large company. The connector will eventually timeout and give you an error message. I see a lot of bug reports in Red Hat's bugzilla but no action.
