Logos App is running in the background but won't run in the foreground therefore can't access resources.

OK, Tom,

I removed the program and deleted everything that said 'LOGOS' (that I could find), and did a re-install again.  It seems to be working fine, but indexing is taking hours and has yet to finish.  Is this normal for the initial startup?

Yes, the initial indexing will consume a number of hours to complete.

OK, Well.

When I initiated the indexing it originally said 3 hours, then 4.  After letting it set for about 2 hours it came back saying 12 hours, then couple minutes later 13 hours.  It just keeps increasing.  this normal too?

The library opens and seems to function, however the MBP is running hot enough to fry an egg.  I fear letting it run too long attempting to index if it's not indexing.

The change in time estimates is normal.  

The heat is also normal. However, if you want to keep things cooler, you can do what I do, put a house fan next to your computer.

Make sure that your hard disk is not going into hibernation when you are away. This will pause indexing.  

A utility like Caffeine will make sure your computer does not sleep

Ultimately, it wont take anywhere near 23 hours to index (something under 5 depending on the size of your library).

I have "Insomnia" to keep the  computer running when I'm away. 30 hours and counting.

Vito,

Close any applications you don't need to free up as much memory as possible. Indexing needs about 1 GB of RAM while it's running. If you run low on free RAM while it's indexing it can really increase to indexing time.

Everything has been shut down, for the most part.  Now at 44 hours remaining.  How long should I wait before I realize it's not working? Or how do I know if it is?

You can use Activity Monitor to see if your CPU is working hard while indexing. You can use Console to view the Indexer.log. Sometimes the indexer appears to pause when Logos 4 is shutdown, but I haven't yet detemined the cause. If it appears that nothing is happening in the CPU in Activity Monitor try starting Logos4 again.

I restarted. The indexer begins without me opening LBS. The Activity monitor is showing the indexer working hard and using about 500m memory. Started at 47 minutes remaining, now up to 9 hours.  Waiting it out.

OK, I left it running overnight and it is at 143 hours remaining.  It begins indexing when the computer boots, prior to opening L4. So there is no way to keep it from the process without uninstalling the program.

Here is the log.

Hi Vito

You didn't allow the computer to sleep during the night did you?

No. I have Insomnia installed.   Needless to say, the computer was hot, having run the process very hard all day and following night.

Vito,

How much free space do you have on your hard drive?  At least 10GB is required for indexing to complete.

I put a fan next to my laptop so keep it cool.  My iMac also runs hot (and I don't have Logos on it) so it is really an issue with Mac not doing a good job of dispersing the heat when running resource intensive applications.  Anyway, running a house fan next to it makes me feel better.

 2 gig RAM

That's most likely your problem. Indexing could take a VERY long time if you don't have enough RAM.

My 2 year old iMac with 2Gig RAM running Leopard can run L4 flawlessly. But my 3 Year old MBP with 2 gig RAM running Snow leopard cannot?

Doesn't make much sense to me.

Vito,

Are you still having trouble with your Logos 4 install on Snow Leopard?
