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?

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."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

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
