Thread: too many beagled-helpers

    Default too many beagled-helpers


    in 10.3, if i don't monitor it closely i will end up with 20 or 30
    beagled-helper processes. i don't have the 100% cpu issues that others
    mention, but it does use memory and the system starts paging too
    frequently.

    what is causing so many of them to be started? is there a cure other
    than to disable it?

    'Beagled-helper 100% CPU - NOVELL FORUMS' (http://tinyurl.com/7atjof)

    Updating it might help.

    Personally, Beagle is one of the first things I uncheck when I'm
    installing Suse. I despise it. But that's just personal opinion.

    from those that replied, it would seem beagle is not very popular. i
    don't use it often, but i have found it occasionally better than find if
    i don't remember enough of the file name.

    that said, what is the issue with the growing helper procs? i read
    somewhere that it can choke on compressed tarballs, iso images, etc.;
    but now i can't find that reference. is there a way to configure it
    better than the out-of-the-box settings? before i give up on it.


    thanks.

    The issue that I have with Beagle is related to my attitude toward
    desktops in general: if something helps me to do what I want, I'm all
    for it. If not, it's a useless Eater Of Resources(tm) that needs to go
    away.

    Beagle certainly qualifies as a UEOR

    It certainly needs to be removed as installed by default!

    I don't know why you guys are all being so tough on Beagle. I use the
    app all the time and find it very helpful for . . . whatever it does
    (???)

    (Just Kidding!)

    Hi
    Glad I run Gnome so don't have to add the plasmoid paperclip to go with
    it....

    It's that barking noise when the desktop starts up, I think.
