Description Uno Engborg 2006-11-04 15:20:34 UTC
Description of problem:

Bealge only works in say 1-2% of my searches. It fails to find files that have
and e-mails that been there for months, more often than not it fails to find
recently added material.

My suspicion is that the indexing process somehow get stuck, but I realy have no
clue on how to debug it further. At least beagled runs (as me). I use Evolution
as my e-mail client. I use IMAP, so it would be understandable if mail residing
on the server was not indexed, but not even mail downloaded for offline access
seam to get the attention of beagle all the time.

The same problem occurs if I add a file to my home directory. It doesn't seam to
 be searchable with beagle-search

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file in your home directory, containing some text
2. Wait for a few minutes to make sure it have been indexed
3. Search for some text in the file using beagle search, find that nothing is
found, continue  with 2. Still nothing found...
Actual results:
Sometimes very old results show up, from the web or mail, but never the newly
created file or recent mails.

Expected results:

The file containing the text should be found.

Additional info:
I'm running it on a 1,8 GHz, Pentium M with 1.2G RAM and 7500rpm Hard drive.

Created attachment 140365 [details]
output from strace beagle-info --daemon-version

It seams that there is something wrong with the socket communication at the end
of the trace.

Comment 3 Michael Lausch 2006-11-08 13:09:50 UTC
kill all running beagle processes (if necessary use kill -9) and start the 
beagle daemon from the cmdline with the "--debug --fg" options. 
does the output end with an Xlib error?

see bug 212370 which deals with these Xlib errors. maybe this bug report is a
