    Do I need gam_server?


    When I copy files from one of my drives to another, gam_server starts using up about 40% CPU.

    I read a bit about what gamin is, but what I couldn't figure out is, Do I need it? If not, how do I disable it?

    Thanks.

    Basically, this monitors all file movement and alteration on your box. You don't *need* this to be enabled. It's something that *should* be left disabled unless specifically enabled by the user.

    Any suggestions regarding how?

    And I mean other than using gaminrc files with the "notify /*" entry. It won´t work for me (still high CPU). And I have put this entry in /etc/gamin/gaminrc, /etc/gamin/mandatory_gaminrc as well as in ~home/.gaminrc
