roundcube problem after yum update on 2.4 system

So, in the end, I went back to the documentation (which obvioulsy is now 
different due to the new version of roundcube) which is here:

Starting off with an error:
[root at kolab roundcubemail]# yum install kolab-webclient-database
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, priorities
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base:
 * epel:
 * updates:
Setting up Install Process
No package kolab-webclient-database available.
Error: Nothing to do

I did a yum search but didn't see it.  Since I had installed that on the 
original kolab install, I didn't worry too much.

I then followed it down to the database preparation step, where I did this 
instead of what's documented:

mysql --user=roundcube --password=pw roundcubemail < 
/usr/share/doc/roundcubemail-0.8/SQL/mysql.initial.sql create the database structure.

Also, in, I had to change more than the password:

$rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysqli://roundcube:pw@localhost/roundcubemail';

I had to change the "mysql" to "mysqli" which is similar to what the original 
file had.

I changed the plugin array and the calendar_driver as directed in the 
documentation.  I also changed some of the new to what was in the 
old one (like "default_host" and "smtp_server") and the like.

Now I'm back to what I mentioned below.  Trying to read email gives me the 601 
error.  Tyring the address book gave a 601 error.  Trying the calendar caused 
the calendar button to disappear and cause the 601 error.  Calendar came back 
when the framework was redrawn (selected mail from the top menu and calendar 
came back).
