Search engine for for you docs and home web pages


Hi
Not particularly a Linux question but can anyone recommend a search engine that you can employ to search through documents, scripts and html pages that you would have stored on your hard drive, home network or server?

I've a load of 'stuff' spread across both my MS and Linux partitions that I loose! And on a few occasions I've spent many an hour in google and linux help sites looking for info that I already had, what a pain.

Thanks

K

PS I've posted a similiar post on the JavaWorld forum to poll a different audience (just incase any of you use that too).

http://www.htdig.org/ should do it, and might be will work across to FAT32 or NTFS drives if they are mounted on your Linux box, although I've never tried it. Not sure about performance though. From the command line, tools such as locate will also work across to Windows drives letting you pull you informtion in, but I don't any pretty front-ends that would allow you to pull it up through a web browser.

thanks guys, sorry should have updated my profile as I'm 100% Suse now.
But yeah, thats the idea. It shouldn't be too difficult to knock up a simple jsp-servlet app running on tomcat that could html'ise spooled output from a command line function? Although I reckon I'm reinventing a wheel here, that someone has already sussed out.

this could be what I'm looking for
http://www.beaglewiki.org/Beagle_CVS_on_SUSE_9.3

would be great if it reads NTFS directories too.
I really don't like GNOME so hopefully it works on KDE.
Anyone else used this?
Anyone tried to write an Java app that calls the API, or is it all blasted C# (I don't like C# either)?

The CVS versions are meant to be better than those available through SuSE packages if you can get them working (search on LQ for problems...). Also, when I had SuSE 9.2 or 9.3 running on a test box, it was quite painful in booting up as it would background the beagle update system where it would scan through for new/updated files. Quite a few people had similar issues (again, search the forums for specifics), but setting it to run when you're not utilising the machine helps. As for NTFS drives, I don't know unfortunately. It's windowmanager independant so will happily work on KDE as well as Gnome
