I see that there is still a beagle project on the web. Older versions of Fedora used to install it. Beagle was a pain in the neck, so I'm glad not to have it in FC 12. Is it likely to return to Fedora?

I just installed Beagle and I have it indexing (by launching the indexer and checking its status via the terminal) but I can't figure out how to launch the actual searching GUI. I did some research online and found that this is done by clicking on the "search" icon under Applications > Accessories but there is not icon entitled Beagle nor search there? How do I access it?!
Not even sure how I found the reason: mime type of *.r files (plain text R scripts) got set to "application/x-extension-r". (by ~/.local/share/mime/packages/user-extension-r.xml) . I checked update logs but couldn't determine the origin of this file. Interestingly, that happened only on one of two similar installations with the same 64bit Fedora 11.
Have recently installed OpenSuSE 11.1 with KDE 3.5 and notice 30-60 sec response delay on clicking the menu (chameleon) button. During the delay the hard drive disk busy light is on, as is the busy light of any connected USB disk drive. This typically happens on the first use of the menu button after booting. Subsequent clicking on the menu button results in immediate response.
PlanetCCRMA is a project to create an audio studio using Fedora. Their repository has packages for most Fedora versions. Installing it in Fedora 12 was not quite as easy as the older versions, so I documented the process.
