Comment 2 Steve Bergman 2006-11-12 10:14:58 EST
My original report was made based on the behavior of a machine which I had
upgraded from FC5.  I have now confirmed this problem with a fresh install on
another machine.

In addition, even if I include my own external filter get no snippets for files
of type application/msword.  Excel files are indexed as expected.

BTW, I feel a bit self-conscious about caring whether MS docs get indexed.  I'm
trying to get Fedora into an environment which, unfortunately, currently uses
MSOffice exclusively.  Moving file services from WIndows to Samba and providing
a beagle based app with a web front end is Fedora's first task.  I want Fedora
to come out looking good.

If you rebuild beagle with --enable-wv1, is this fixed?
Comment 4 Steve Bergman 2006-11-15 17:26:32 EST
Yes. That fixes it.

Thank You,
Comment 5 Steve Bergman 2006-11-20 11:22:25 EST
Please note that there seems to be a new and relevant upstream problem in 0.2.12.

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2006-11-23 04:30:59 EST
I added this to rawhide.

I still have a problem with the above build when attempting to index word documents.

Do you have "wv" installed? Its in extras.
Comment 9 Douglas Furlong 2006-12-13 05:25:12 EST

Comment 10 Alexander Larsson 2006-12-13 08:43:46 EST
strange. Maybe it needs to be there when building.
If you rebuild the srpm, does that fix it?
Comment 11 Douglas Furlong 2006-12-13 08:56:36 EST
I don't have a spare box to do this on, and building that package would involve
installing about 15 RPM's + all it's dependancies.

I did notice that there is wv and wv2, could it be that you built it against wv2?
Comment 12 Douglas Furlong 2006-12-13 09:14:25 EST
Okay, I did it any way to help expadite the issue.

I have wv and wv-devel installed, on rebuilding the package, I now get valid
information from beagle-extract-content.

beagle-extract-content Documents/Purchase\ Orders/djf-20060626.doc 
Filename: file:///home/dfurlong/Documents/Purchase Orders/djf-20060626.doc
Debug: Loaded 50 filters from /usr/lib/beagle/Filters/Filters.dll
Warn: DocumentSummaryInformationStream not found in
/home/dfurlong/Documents/Purchase Orders/djf-20060626.doc

MimeType: application/msword

  Timestamp = 29/06/2006 14:24:44
  dc:title = Vendor
  fixme:last-saved-by = saes

etc etc etc.

I hope this helps
Comment 13 Douglas Furlong 2006-12-13 13:00:22 EST
I am not sure what you will get from this however....

After a restart, attempting to run the beagle-extract-content command on a word
doc resulted in a failure.

Re-moving and re-installing the files created from the rpm-build command, once
again allowed me to query the doc files.

Unfortunately I do not know enough to realy debug this.

let me know if you need any more info from me.
Comment 14 Alexander Larsson 2006-12-14 05:33:52 EST
Things are a bit tricky because wv is in extras, the comming merge will solve
that though.
