OpenSUSE :: Why Is Nepomuk Strigi File Indexer Suddenly Running?
Jul 23, 2010
I've had opensuse 11.2 for a long time and I've never seen this nepomuk thing run before. But all of a sudden on startup just now, I got a message that it was running. Why? What is this and should I be worried? Why have I never seen it before?
how one can use the nepomuk/strigi file indexing service. I started up dolphin, and typed the search string in the upper right corner, and clicked Search. The search result is a long list of files. The one I need is a PDF file. When I select this file, on the right hand side there is the following info: 'Is part of: 15.2 GiB Removable Media' which is clearly wrong, since this file resides in my home directory, which is on a 200 GiB partition. If I double-click this file to open in okular, I get an error message:
Code: Could not open nepomuksearch:/nepomuk_3A_2Fres_...... Reason: Please insert the removable medium "15.2 GiB Removable Media" to access this file I guess this is some old result from nepomuk's cache (in the meantime I have had to repartition my hard disk, and restore my home directory from a backup copy on an external hard drive - but this has been many months ago, so I would expect that nepomuk have had the time to recognize this)
I just upgrade to KDE 4.3 and it is great release, one problem I have found with it is that The Strigi Desktop File Indexer does not want to start. The error that I get is "Strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to an installation problem.", does anyone here know if Strigi logs things like this and were? "We must plan for freedom, and not only for security, if for no other reason than only freedom can make security more secure."
I've installed KDE 4.6.2 (from Index of /repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4) and I've noticed that Strigi fails to work. In my System Settings I have?message that Strigi haven't started, although it should (the checkbox to strart Srtigi is active). The process virtuoso-t is constantly suspended in the system.
OS: OpenSuse 11.4 64 bit. Some bugs are resolved in KDE 4.6.2 compared to 4.6.00, so I would like to stay with KDE 4.6.2.
I have installed opensuse 11.2 64 bit on my pc. But I have some troubles with nepomuk and desktop search. I, in system settings pannel, have tried to enable nepomuk and strigi. But strigi show me this error message:
Code: Strigi service inizialization failed, maybe for an installation error. This is strange becouse during my installation I have not seen error messages....
I have Lenovo G550 and openSUSE 11.4. Everything's ok, wifi without problems, I could connect to anywhere I wanted to, but yesterday while laptop was running and was connected actually by wire to internet, after removing the wire I realized that I cannot connect to wifi (the laptop was hibernated during night) - even the light diode in the front of the laptop was not shining. I went to yast and realized that the wlan0 isn't enabled and there's new eth1 port. But the wlan by ifup I cannot start and the eth1 I cannot start as well.
i have a "nepomuk is not running" error message :"Nepomuk Indexing Agents Have Been isabled The Nepomuk service is not available or fully operational and attempts to rectify this have failed. Therefore indexing of all data stored in the Akonadi PIM service has been disabled, which will severely limit the capabilities of any application using this data.The following problems were detected:Nepomuk is not running."and also "nepomuk was not able to find the configured database backend 'redland'. Existing data can thus not be accessed ..."by the way while launching kontactt gives the following errors :mysql server journal with errorsnepomuk service not registered at D Busno ressource agents have been found
how nepomuk is supposed to work on opensuse 11.4 KDE? My nepomuk is active but it always says in "systemsettings" that 0 files are indexed. When I do a search via Dolphin, it never finds a file. It doesn't matter if I select "from here" or "everywhere". I also tried to select the root dir '/' to look for files to index, but still nepomuk says 0 files are indexed and dolphin finds nothing.
Installed 11.3 as new install on Thinkpad T42. I now have a persistent notification "Nepomuk was not able to find the configured database backend 'redland' ... what it means. System seems to be working but desktop icons have grey vertical rectangular box when selected. No objects to select in the boxes though. Previous version had tools available as I recall.
I have a VM setup in VirtualBox of Win XP. This VM has been setup for well over 4 years.
All of a sudden today, the VM started running very slow. I checked the task manager in Windows, nothing eating up PCU or memory there. I then ran htop. Attached is what I saw. There are many repeat processes with different PIDs. Is this normal?
recently i setup new LAMP server , after some days faced a strange problem? suddenly the server load goes to 100 or 80 but there is no wearied process running? the normal lod is between 0.5 to 1.5? the server have 2 hdd on hardware raid 0
My system: Ubuntu 9.10/gnome Gateway SX2802 with Intel Q8300, 4GB ram, 750GB drive only 6 months old. My internal drive is read/writing continuously without stopping no matter what I am doing. It begins immediately after boot. It simply runs and runs nonstop. This is with NO APPLICATIONS running. This is a problem which cropped up suddenly after 5 months of running just fine. What I have tried:
1. Disconnecting Internet - no change
2. Looking at processes in System Monitor. Well, everything says "sleeping" and there isn't anything that looks obvious to me, but there are a LOT of processes. I am afraid my drive will simply burn up.
If I let my computer sit for about 10 minutes, I lose all the windows I had open (gnome) and i get a message saying I'm running in low graphics mode. I have to restart X in low graphics mode to get it to work. i can't tell the difference, but as an avid writer, I often feel the need to get up and think about whatever I have open in oowriter.
I have been pulling my hair out trying to find out why the Wine System Tray suddenly started appearing in its own little window when running Netmeter, cluttering up the desktop. I searched the web in vain, back many tears, most people saying they couldn't understand it when it happened to them.
Then I realized that the last thing I did was to stop Cairo Dock (the novelty had worn off!) and to move the Gnome Panel to the BOTTOM of the screen in place of Cairo. I suspected this was making the Wine System tray homeless.
So I moved the Gnome panel back to the TOP, restarted Ubuntu, stopped and restarted Netmeter and the Netmeter icon appeared back in the panel where it belonged.
Would I be correct in thinking that Wine System Tray will only stay in the panel if the panel is at the top of the screen?
I have GParted installed, running openSUSE 11.3 with GNOME. When running GParted, it always grayed out most file system actions, supporting only hfs fully. This made no sense, as I had all the required packages installed for other file system support. However, I recently figured out how to get it to work. Using the installed menu button doesn't work, running "gnomesu /usr/sbin/gparted" doesn't work; to get it to work, I have to open up a terminal, type "su -" to log in as root, and then run gparted. The menu button and gnomesu both prompt for a password, so it should be running as root, but launching it through the root terminal is the only way to actually get it to work. Is one root different from another?
I've accidentally changed /usr/bin/php file on my server by running a cp command. I know this is bad, i just don't know how bad. Everything is working fine (websites using php), so i just wanted to know what this action could cause and also how can i restore original content.
The ?search engine thing 'strigi' is apparently slowing the computer down as it builds its index. The index is already up to about 2GB. This indexing has stared automatically after a new installation of Squeeze. The index is still being built a couple of days after the install. Assume the thing it's indexing is about 167 GB.
Should strigi be left to do its thing, or stopped? If so how?
I first installed strigi as part of nepomuk which came by default with my KDE 4 desktop. I noticed that nepomuk and virtuoso ended up consuming more than 1 GB of memory after a couple of hours, so I disabled it. I gave tracker a try, and after a couple of hours, it was using 300 mb. Left without options I installed the "under archiver" beagle. It has been running for many days keeping all my data indexed and up to date. The best part is that it uses mere 30 mb. The only change I did was enabling user_xattr on my file system, which as far as I know, doesn't affect tracker or strigi. Has anyone experienced this bizarre behavior with strigi or tracker? If so, is there a solution?
I receive following error when trying to enable strigi. "strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to installation problem" I have searched internet, obviously not good enough, and i have found nothing. Nothing that would work. i have tried installing openjdk-devel as suggested, soprano. And still nothing. I have same problems on both boxes running Fedora 12.
I just upgraded Kubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04. I had problems getting Nepomuk and Strigi to run on 9.10, but finally did. I was using the Soprano backend on that version. Now, it seems that Virtuoso is the new backend, Ok?
I enabled Nepomuk, and Strigi, but the setting dialog in "System Settings / Advanced / Nepomuk" says that Strigi cannot start, could be an installation problem. When I expand the system tray, I see that the strigi icon is listed, and says it's scanning.
Is the warning in the System Settings incorrect, or is Strigi really not working properly? How can I check the status from the command line, and / or restart the daemon so I can read any errors on startup.
Whenever I boot up ubuntu, virtuoso-t, nepomukserver and 8 instances of a nepomukservices process run, and these DO really slow my system a lot, giving slow response of GUI apps etc... I tried asking before, but nobody knew. I'd like to keep trying: How can I get rid of these processes. What starts them up? I want to remove the command that starts them from which ever config file it is.
NOTE: disabling the desktop search setting in KDE settings does NOT disable these 10 executables that slow down your system. Going to KDE control center and disabling nepomuk there isn't the answer. I'd like to know the config file
My friend was working on a text doc on openOffice and when suddenly his lappy went to hibernation mode. and he had to manually shutdown his lappy. The file his was working with is now blank. the file its self indicates that it is 0 kb.
It started when I wanted to dual boot Windows 7 and Opensuse off of my netbook (No DVD/CD drive) I tried install suse from an external hard drive and I botched it. I ended up erasing EVERYTHING off of my internal netbook hard drive. Windows and all.
Well, I had a couple of other computers so I studied up and eventually successfully installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on my external hard drive (11.3 being the one that I accidentally erased everything with, so kinda scared of it) and now I want to install openSUSE 11.2 on my internal netbook hard drive.
I can not use disks
I can not use a flash drive (For some reason, even if I make it bootable, it will not load up, this could be because it's actually a 8GB microSD card that is placed in a USB card reader.)
I can not use an external hard drive because that's what I'm running suse off of.
I've tried reading up on how to install suse on another drive off of the hard drive and I've gotten as far as whenever I boot up the netbook with the suse external hard drive connected it will ask to boot into OpenSUSE, the Fail Safe, or to install OpenSuse. When I select to install it it gives me the Error 18 Unknown File system.
I've tried formatting the internal hard drive twice. One as NTFS and again as EXT4. Neither seems to effect it other than when it's ext4 I can open it and it contains a Lost and Found folder.
When I interrupt the boot sequence by pressing c and going to the terminal and I use the root (hd +TAB command it tells me I have a hd0 and a hd1. The hd1 only has 1 partition which is ext4, which I'm assuming hd1 is the internal hard drive (I'm not sure how to check) and the hd0 is the external hard drive, which has three partitions. One with an unknown file system and two with ext4. When I try to enter the set up from the terminal it gives me the same error for any thing I put it (e.g. root (hd0,0) gives the same error as root (hd0,1), or root (hd0,2) and root (hd1,0)
Something like it cannot locate these two files I'm assuming it needs to boot. If anyone finds this relevant I'll retry it and post the files its missing.
I've been searching for awhile and can't find any threads that can solve my problem. From other threads, however, I have noticed that I should probably include my menu.lst, listed below
I have also ran the boot info script and received the RESULTS.txt file it generates. Listed below
Virtuoso neopomunk and xorg take most of the cpu while on indexing
Code: 1429 root 20 0 294m 96m 22m R 44 4.9 36:25.55 Xorg 1880 kirys 39 19 530m 47m 20m S 44 2.4 12:50.73 nepomukservices 1786 kirys 20 0 138m 45m 3336 S 30 2.3 15:39.85 virtuoso-t I can understand the complexity of the indexing but the cpu usage of xorg means to me that there is a lot of unnecessary refesh on the interface during the process even if there is no open dialog.
