RE: DocSearcher on Debian

The problem I had with running DocSearcher on Debian also occurred on Win2k
with j2re1.3; I upgraded to 1.4 and it worked fine, so it appears
DocSearcher requires Java 1.4.

I haven't tried it again on Debian, but DocSearcher can index mapped network
drives in Windows without any complaints; don't see why it couldn't do the
same in Debian for mounted drives. I believe the index is stored on a local
machine, though.

I don't know more than what you've said.  Re DocSearcher though, it is a
shame that it doesn't seem to want to work as a browser applet.  When I
originally stuck it in our "to-package" list it was because I figured it
would be nice to stick on a law office intranet, to search through all
the OOo documents on the file server.  Seems it will only search through
local files though, which makes it a bit useless.  Or maybe I'm wrong?
