10.4: Completely disable Spotlight
Authored by: DonaemouS on Jun 24, '05 05:40:20AM

i have a big problem. i usually do search on LAN volumes. The server is running MacOS X 10.3.x. The system on which we do the search is using MacOS X Tiger. With MacOS X Panther, when we did a search, we got a result in about 5 seconds (LAN 10/100Mbit). Now, with Spotlight, we get an answer in about 15/25 seconds! Now, i don't understand if turning off spotlight, i could get back a search mode via namefiles instead indexing the content files.

I just would to know, how i can return to a MacOS X 10.3.x search mode. Unfortunately, the eMacs we have bought, can't run MacOS X 10.3!!! (already tryed! =/ )
