So, how can can I get rid of beagle?

Okokok, I have uninstalled it. I haven't assumed, that it can be
uninstalled so easily, as it is integrated into gnome.

Anyway: beagle is an answer to a question that has never been asked and
eats a lot of system resources! Maybe it's because of it's .exe file
extension :-)

Beagle could be usefull, it it didnt eat all my cpu and if it didn't
almost 1 Gig of diskspace for caching data in a hidden (!) directory.
Any unexperienced user would conclude: Fedora is slow!!

In my experience, properly functioning beagle runs only occasionally (once the first pass is complete) and runs only in the background, suspending itself when there are other activities. On the other hand, a broken beagle appears to run full-on at every idle moment and never seems to terminate. I finally deleted the beagle cache directory and let it run again. It ran for quite a while, but not so aggressively, and now appears to behave normally--it suspends immediately when I touch the keyboard or mouse.

You can track the daemon's progress with beagle-status. It's kind of educational to watch for a little while when it's running.

Do you feel scammed by the fact that the cache directory is hidden? Do you feel the same way about your browser cache directory? (Yes, it's pretty big, though...)

I feel your pain! This might sound dumb as hell, but how do you actually
use the thing productively?? Ric

Once the indexing is done, in GNOME, open Places -> Search.
