I’m trying out EagleFiler to see if it fits my needs and so far it seems a lot better than anything else I’ve tried for organizing/cataloging my PDFs.
I’m having trouble with it just hanging when indexing the library, though. Last night it hung after around 2,900 records. This morning it’s hung on record 722, twice in a row. After the first time I followed a suggestion in another thread for forcing EF to rebuild the index from scratch, but it hit and stopped at 722 again.
Looking at top, I no longer see EF or any associated processes taking up much processor time.
Looking at Console, the books eftexttool was supposedly working on were different each time. After each cancel of the indexing process, I see a different list of:
2008-12-04 10:31:43,288 - tools.pyc:227 ToolCancelledError: Tool cancelled: u’eftexttool’
I say “supposedly” because the eftexttool wasn’t doing anything when I cancelled, but it was earlier than the number of indexed books was rising.
Is it really supposed to restart indexing from the beginning every single time? I’ve added stuff to EF in batches and every time allowed it to index what I added before moving on to the new batch. Now I see, though, that when it indexes it tries to index the entire library from the beginning, even though it should have had most of it indexed already. I can’t have it re-index the entire library every time I add 1, 10, or even 1000 new items.
