Thanks for the feed-back.

I tried now a few nonsensical searches. It takes three minutes for each search, with 2000 books and 35 collections, from the collections home page. The /system/Search Indexes folder has two files, index.db (1.9 MB) and index.lg (8 bytes). If a search returns nonempty results, then it does this, as you say, very fast indeed.

Oh so its quick when its a nonempty resulted search; otherwise it takes 3 minutes each? That does seem a bit long.

I removed the index file altogether, reset the collections and recreated them clean from the PC, and after the first search (when it takes a long time, of course), both kinds of results show in a matter of seconds.

It looks like when changing the files structure from the PC, we need to take care as well about this index.

Thanks for the feed-back.

Oh ok, good.

Ah, well Idk about that, but I can understand if you alter where books are via the PC, it could cause issue with how they are indexed.

Anyway, that is good you got it figured out.

Another question, please.

Does stopping the indexing service interfere with the dictionary use? The dictionary I was using is accepted by Menu/Settings/Menu/Change Main Dictionary, but when using the dictionary option, instead of the explanation in this dictionary, I get the explanation of the English dictionary.

Of course, the only thing indexed now is the list of books and collections.

Hmm, not sure about that. I rarely use the built-in dictionary, let alone use another, so I cannot really tell you.

I guess if it works with the English dictionary that is built-in, but not the custom one you use, the easiest sure-fire way of knowing if the indexing has anything to do with it would be to uninstall the indexing hack, let it index completely again (ie, create the huge file(s) in the index folder with all of the words on all of your books), and then see if it still defaults to the English dictionary.

Fortunately, if you sue my two scripts I made for this hack, it would be easy to test, and then revert back to using the script.

Finally, I do not really know why the lack of indexing would cause problems with using your custom dictionary. I mean if it works with the default English one, Idk why it wouldn't with your custom, so long as you have that one set, as before the hack. Just my opinion. Again, I haven't used the dictionary feature enough to be an expert.

This thread is about Kindle 3. The Kindle Touch is a completely different device, and the mentioned start.sh indeed does not exist.

Take a look at /etc/upstart/framework.

My k3 is brick because i use this command

first
shift D I I with launchpad
then
;debugon
~disableindexing

Then i restart k3,it stop at the 45% loading bar.Even i return to factory it still stop at there.
So i think i should resumeindexing then maybe my kindle will be ok.
but where to set ,or which file should be change,Does anyone here know how to do this?

and I think my file start.sh is wrong now ,can some paste the file here?

(fortunately my launchpad still alive and i have a terminal in kindle . i can load duokan system,but still can not access the original system)

~disableindexing just runs a script. If you have a terminal, you should be able to run the script manually to turn indexing back on. Also, with debug on, you are doing a lot of extra logging that consumes storage space. You should turn it off immediately after running a command in the search bar.

You don't have to write it, just run it from the command line terminal.
