10.4: Completely disable Spotlight
Authored by: dbolli on Sep 02, '06 12:41:50AM

Hi All,

A better solution (IMHO) if mdimport is crashing is to examine the crashdump to ascertain which .mdimporter is causing the crash.

Then from Terminal:

mdimport -L
cd <dir-of-mdimporter>
mv <thing.mdimporter> <thing.tmp>
mdimport -p /

to check that mdimport no longer crashes (for boot volume in this example)

Hope this helps.
