first of all, thank you very much for your help. I started erasing everything
on the Laptop and on the PC, defined new resources on both, and started
entering a few ( 5 ) records on the PC. I saved the same records to the laptop
via rsync. A 6th random record on the PC was not accepted. Result after
rebooting = 5 records matching. I reentered the record, and after a new
reboot I had only 4 records !! . rsync from laptop to PC, and I had again the
same 4 records, not the 5 I copied from the Laptop ! No pattern to see.
Similar procedure on the Laptop went _withouth_ problems. I updated records,
introduced filters, wrote new records, etc.
It seems therefore, that my kaddressbook program on the PC is damaged. I agree
with you, no bug can be seen.
A few questions:
1.) what are the backups std.vcf_6, std.vcf__1 etc. ? What is the system ?
2.) if I do a backup, backing up std.vcf seems not enough to save the
structures like filters etc.What should I have to save in addition ?
3.) to repair my PC-Addressbook, what would you suggest ? Recompile
kdepimlibs, kdepim, kdepim-runtime ? Or is it possible to recompile a
Thank you for the assistence !
