Just wondering about what happened the last few days. Several times I
found that my laptop was running a very high temperature, and the
culprit was “virtuoso” on the system activity gui. So I would stop
virtuoso, and/or log out of kde and then log back in, and things would
seem to go along fine for a few hours. Then it would start up again.
When I would hover the mouse over nepomuk in the system tray, it would
say “File index service is not running.”
The last time it did this, I finally decided to go into nepomuk in the
system settings and disable the nepomuk file indexer and the nepomuk
email indexer. I had it indexing emails because I have been running mail
to see if I like it. So I am wondering if this has something to do with
kmail, because if I were only running thunderbird, I would not need the
email indexer to be running.
In any case, this morning before work I was going to check the latest
news, and I opened up firefox and got this message that there was a
problem with firefox security because my hard drive was full. So I
checked the hard drive, and I found that the last 18 gigs that I had
empty had been filled up. When I looked to see what it was, it was this:
On /home/george/.cache/tracker, the following files show up:

So you see that meta.db is huge.
So what is the general advice here? Should I delete this meta.db
database? Or are there some other ideas out there?
