Better Beagle Acceptance

Feature state

openSUSE-11.0
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.1
Done

Description

There have been several discussions on the public openSUSE mailing lists, e.g. http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2008-01/msg00157.html where people complain about resource usage or garbage from beagle.

I suggest that we analyze the current situation and check where are real problems and consider solutions. One option would be to make it easier for users to not enable beagle on their systems.

Note: The feature request is about getting a better acceptance by our users of our indexing technology - and therefore let's figure out what are the problems they are hitting in real life.

Note: powertop advises "Suggestion: Disable or remove 'beagle' from your system.
Beagle is the program that indexes for easy desktop search, however it's
not very efficient and costs a significant amount of battery life.".

Yes, this is well known and was covered extensively last year and caused by polling for battery status in some cases.

0.3.2 uses hal to detect battery status:

Recently, in the context of SLED 11 (Bug #450856) , there was an improvement. I'll try to verify it soon.

What about integrating beagle's setting dialog into gnome-control-center?

It is not very hard to remove beagle from autostart application. Just add a line into beagled-autostart.desktop.
