I've finally got FC2 installed and stable after all kind of problems (the
power supply was flaking but only occassionally). This is on a new box with
a dual AMD MP and 2GB RAM.
My problem, how to get the filters and mail stored on my old box (RH 7.2,
Kmail 1.4.1, KDE 3.0.0) onto the new box (FC 2, Kmail 1.6.2, KDE 3.2.2-6RH).
There are several hundred saved messages and about 40 filters. Studying the
formats of the ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc files in both boxes, they seem to
be somewhat different.
I was able to get the address book imported using the vCard format. For some
reason the Addressbook.csv exported from the old system isn't readable on the
I really don't want to put all those filters back in by hand if I can help it.
Thanks for all the good information you folks are putting on this list. I'm
getting quite a collection of things to change or try in the future.
