I had a motherboard problem in my old machine running OpenSUSE 10.3. I used Evolution as my email client. I had backed up my /home/user folder to a file server every night using rsync. It turned out to be cheaper to just buy another new machine rather than try to fix the mother board and so I did. I installed OpenSUSE11.1 and I want to use Evolution again. My question is: how do I recover all the folders, contact info and everything else that I had before; presumably all that information is in the .evolution folder in my backed up files. Copying the whole .evolution folder and its sub-directories into my new /home/user folder doesn't work.
Thanks.
