This message to lfs-dev/support and blfs-dev/support. People on the other
lists will read this so not cross-posting more than necessary.
As you all know, or may have suspected anyway, the search engine hasn't been
updating lately. It worked in that it returned results, but it wasn't updated
with regards to indexing the mailinglists and picking up new posts that way.
Some time ago the engine started to exhibit behavior that when it was
updating, the /var partition would fill up but no files were actually
created. So I disabled the update script from cron for the time being so it
wouldn't happen again (this filling up caused postfix and syslogd to crash).
I upgraded the software today and did a test run. Everything seems to work
again. It's only filling up where it is supposed to: in the search engine's
directory and not in /var.
While I was at it, I also added the two latest mailinglists to the search
options: hlfs-book and livecd.
If you notice anything strange, fire off an email to
