We cannot confirm this behaviour.

parse-metadata occassionaly leads to a slow down, but only a minute
at most and not on bootup.
It's an often reported bug on the Hungarian SUSE mailing list, so I can confirm this behavior. AFAIK it's a problem on slower machines, and comes combined with beagle. But 'parse-metadata' is the most often reported resource hog.


You are overblowing the issue.
I think, he is right for slower machines, but it's a non issue on recent machines (max 2 years old).

/etc/init.d/novell-zmd stop
rpm -e zmd rug zen-updater
Is there any functionality lost this way? I know, that the update icon from the tray will be gone, which is a positive change for me :-) Anything else? Bye,
