I’ve got a new hobby - watching beagle index all the data that has accumulated in my homedir.

The installation on Ubuntu is pretty straightforward, except that some libraries/symlinks don’t seem to be created correctly.

$ sudo apt-get install libgsf-cil libgmime-cil libebook1.2-3 
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

I think there were some more libraries missing, but executing “beagled –fg –debug” will probably tell you about that. Everytime it spits out a DllNotFoundException with some .so or complains about a missing .dll, just install those and everything works fine.

Pretty amazing that it runs so smooth, at least up til now. Kudos to the developers.

PS: Yes, this is about beagle in the version for Hoary. 0.0.12 has not been backported yet so I wont install, even though has serious issues for me (memory consumption with blam! is insane).

Thanks for the tip, however does this apply to Beagle 0.0.11 for Hoary? Thanks Ben

Yes, beagle in the version for Hoary.
