    there is a zypper command you can use at the command line interface,
    but i don't know the package names to pull..

    REALLY easy, and as effective is to just turn off the indexing:

    - right click on the hound's icon (all following are left click)
    - click on "Configure Kerry"
    - click on "Daemon Status" (tab)
    - click on the "Stop" button near top right
    - click on "Apply" button near bottom
    - click on "Indexing" (tab)
    - click (if required) "Start Beagle indexing service automatically"
    OFF (that is no X)
    - click "Apply"
    - click "Ok" and the window goes away and your dog sleeps until you
    go back to the configure and click him awake (but, no one ever does)..

    you could try
    Code:
     kill -9 beagle*
    might help or
    Code:
    sudo zypper remove *beagle*
    be careful of this one, it may remove things you don't want removed

    to remove beagle

    zypper rm kerry beagle

    to stop beagle from indexing, without removing it.

    touch ~/.dontrunbeagle

    Why, oh why, do you advocate -9? That's dangerous! *Always* try other
    signals first, and use -9 *only* as a last resort. In fact, it's
    almost always best to try the default (-15, SIGTERM) first, which is
    intended for that purpose and gives the killed program the chance to
    shut down gracefully; in my experience, most will. If that fails,
    try any or all of -1 (SIGHUP), -2 (SIGINT), -3 (SIGQUIT), and only
    if these fail, use -9 (SIGKILL).

    Also, unquoted wildcard characters in shell commands are expanded
    into file names by the shell, which is obviously not what you want.

    And finally, kill doesn't accept process names as arguments, only
    PIDs. You probably thought of killall or killproc, but even those
    don't accept wildcards in process names.

    (Un)fortunately I don't have any machines left with beagle installed,
    so I cannot check what the silly mutt's actual process name is, but
    I seem to remember it was beagled or something similar. So the
    recommended sequence to slay the beast would be:

    killall beagled
    -- check if it's gone; if not:
    killall -INT beagled
    -- check if it's still around; if so:
    killall -KILL beagled

    i think i read somewhere that Beagle _requires_ Mono[tm]....and,
    since Mono[tm] is a Novell trademarked project, including Beagle in
    Novell's supported openSUSE releases *forces* inclusion of Mono[tm]
    and therefore increases Novell's claimed user base, downloads,
    propagation, acceptance, etc etc etc..

    "follow the money" often applies, even in Open Source and/or Free
    software..
