Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 205985
thunderbird backend disabled due to mem use
Last modified: 2009-02-21 11:08:04 EST
Beagled is running on startup. FOr reasons I don't understand, beagle grows in
memory enormously while indexing the large Thunderbird Imap cache files. I
usually kill it when it reaches 750m, and my 1gb machine starts trashing
[hanwen@haring ~]$ beagle-status

Note that I disabled indexing this directory, but Beagle does not take notice.
I'm filing a separate bug for that.
[hanwen@haring ~]$ rpm -q beagle
I filed the bug upstream to get the beagle maintainers to see this too:
So, beagled (BeagleDaemon.exe) is the one growing, not beagled-helper
I'm seeing this too, see upstream bug report.
The thunderbird indexer just doesn't seem ready for public consumption, so i'm
disabling it for now.
I'll keep this bug around to remember to turn it on again.
beagle-0.2.9-4.fc6 has thunderbird disabled.
Turning it back on would probably count as a feature freeze break at this point
Can we enable thunderbird support on 3.2.0 version which will be released with fc9
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Thunderbird support has been enabled for a while.
