Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: sws installation
1. you don't need to install SWS to be able to provide search using Intermedia as the setup for the Intermedia has been already done for you during acs-content-repository installation.
There is ctxsys index created called cr_rev_content_index, the only missing part for if is the job which would update this index on regular basis.
2. Most problems I had with Intemedia was due to INSO_FILTER which did not work and does not work. Testing INSO filter by trying to convert files from command line (executing ctxhx) gave nothing.
3. The solution I used to make intermedia to work on BLOB was setting BLOB to use NULL_FILTER
