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

try recoll or even Google’s desktop search (yes there is a Linux
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.
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™ that needs to go
I would like to see Beagle developed so that when you boot to the
desktop for the first time, an animated beagle comes on the screen, wags
his tail, and then a large cartoon bubble appears that says “Hi! Welcome
to OpenSuse! I’m here to help!”
Then he barks, wags his tail, runs to the lower right corner and is
minimized into the taskbar.
Then every five minutes, he can come back and say “Hi, I’m the OpenSuse
Beagle, I’m here to help you.” and wag his tail some more.
After all, Mirosoft has those talking paper clips, so OpenSuse should
have something similarly annoying.
