I see. I thought that there was very little disk activity. Tracker
can't be _that_ efficient :)
It might be worth waiting an hour or so after running trackerd before
doing a search that should give it enough time to get going.
Okay. I'll take this as a good opportunity to get some sleep. I'll let
trackerd sit over night and if no indexing has occured tomorrow, I can
be definately sure that there's an actual problem.
You will see messages like "indexing file /home/jamie/media.mp3" being
printed to stdout when it is indexing.
Ah. Okay. I was just on my way to browse the source to see what I
"should" be seeing.
The timeout is likely caused by the main thread blocking on something
and therefore not responding in time (im not sure what the default
timeout period is for Dbus). I should improve this.
Okay. We'll see how this waiting goes.
Thanks and good night for now.
A quicker method would be to pass a path to a directory with a few files
in it to trackerd to index (eg trackerd /home/jamie/test). Indexing
should start in under a second in that case.
