Seems to reference GNOME in the autostart…but you can simply right click
on the Beagle and tell it not to autostart before you nuke it.


Disabling Beagle Search

Beagle is a great search tool and I highly recommend you use it. However, if
you run SLED10 on older equipment or have network mounted home directories
you may want to disable it to reduce network bandwidth or speed up older
computers. Please note that you do not need to remove beagle from your
computer, you simply just have to disable it from starting up.

  • rm /opt/gnome/share/autostart/beagled.desktop

  • rm /etc/cron.daily/beagle-crawl-system

  • rpm -e beagle-firefox - This will remove the beagle firefox extension

I don’t know if anyone would recommend doing it my way, but it seems to have
worked perfectly. I went into YaST->Software Management, and uninstalled
package “beagle”, “beagle-firefox”, “libbeagle”, and everything that was
dependent on them. After rebooting, it seems to be 100% disabled.
