Re: static index problem

Hi Nagyon,

Just one more question:
Does beagle need  write permissions on the static indexes?
E.g. can I store a lot of data on a dvd in a directory
with its static index on that dvd too?

No, beagle does not need write permission on the static indexes after
it is created. However (this is a subtle one), beagle does check if
the path to the files in the static index exists when returning
results. The path of each file in the index is the full path of the
file when the index was created. So if you want to store the index on
the dvd then you have to make sure the dvd is mounted at the _same_
mount point everytime and the files were in the _same_ path when the
index was created. e.g. if dvd is always mounted at /mnt/dvd, then
while indexing the files should be present at /mnt/dvd/...

- d.

PS: This is a shortcoming of static indexes esp with respect to removable media.
