tracker stuff is running on my system as well but not using any
significant amount of CPU.
Not sure why they would be installed but on my system tracker is needed by:
If you don't use of of those apps it should be safe to just "yum remove
I removed it. But every now and then I used brasero and tracker tried to
"track" all my photos and music and this took quite a lot CPU power (and as
the data is store on a NFS server quite a lot of network bandwidth).
The question was regarded to the autostart of tracker: It was started by XDG
autostart but as it is a gnome thingy it would be great that is is started in
the gnome environment only (like network manager).
