I'm using KinoSearch 0.163 with TWiki on a Windows 2000 server with Cygwin.
(Dont ask - I recommended Linux, but the client requires Windows.)
Most of the time, KinoSearch works great - much better than the default
However, every so often the index breaks and searches return no results.
If I try to re-index, I get the following error:
Couldn't open file '<...>/index/_1.f0': File exists
at <...>/KinoSearch/Store/FSInvIndex.pm line 88
called at <...>/KinoSearch/Index/SegWriter.pm line 40
Most recently, the problem seemed to occur near the very end of a 20min
If I delete the index directory and re-index, everything works fine.
I've seen similar threads:
but they suggest that the problem was fixed in 0.163.
Any suggestions of things I could try to diagnose and fix the problem, or
I've tried compiling KinoSearch 0.2, but something goes wrong
during the build and charmony.h isn't created.
I could delete and rebuild the entire index daily (or more often).
Before each update or index run, I could have a script check for and delete
files that cause the problems.
