bookmark_borderBackup Evolution mails

Yesterday I backup my Evloution mails from my office hdd to home hdd.

Shutdown evolution and gconftool-2:

$evolution --force-shutdown
$gconftool-2 --shutdown

You need to backup this directory.

~/.evolution/
~/.gconf/apps/evolution/
~/.gnome2_private/Evolution

Create a tar.gz

$tar -cvzf evolution-backup.tar.gz .evolution .gconf/apps/evolution .gnome2_private/Evolution

To restore, use:

$gconftool-2 --shutdown
$evolution --force-shutdown
$tar xzf evolution-backup.tar.gz
$gconftool-2 --unload evolution_setting.xml
$gconftool-2 --load evolution_setting.xml

Today I was trying to compile simple program written in C to connect mysql

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/is/mysql/c/
http://www.osix.net/modules/article/?id=517

I found some people also face this problem.

The problem solved after giving

gcc -o test  -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient test.c
