I've been getting the same errors for the last few days. Seems like a problem with the underlying OS. Umph... makes searching a tad more complicated. Sigh. Such is the life!

Not to pile on, but I have tried to figure out why this isn't working for me. My XP laptop on my home network cannot search regardless of browser. My Mac on my home network cannot search regardless of browser. Hackintosh on home network cannot search regardless of browser. Neither one of the kids machines can search (IE only). However, when I connect to the internet using my mobile wireless card, search works just fine !! Don't know if this helps, but I am going to continue investigating from that angle. I will post if I come up with a potential solution.

There was an error processing the request. Please go back and try again, or contact an administrator for assistance.

Same as all the above, both in Windows/IE7, and Mac 10.4/Firefox3.

Should be fixed now, one of the webservers had lost it's connection to the search server. This was affecting approximately 25% of users.

If anyone still has problems searching, let us know...

I attempted to do a simple search for anyone who has had success with a Foxconn p45a, yet the search results returns:

Search Results You searched for: foxconn p45a Unfortunately your search didn't return any results.
I know for a fact that this post/string exist because Google returned it and that is how I ended up here in the first place! ;) Here is the link:

Foxconn p45a-s Works perfectly

Also if I select Post-Installation Discussion for my "Search Where" field and just use Foxconn for the query string I get returns that use Foxconn but not the above post. Also, if I search for the poster trlla I get their post, but if I search keyword Foxconn and trlla I get the same zero return message above.

Anyhow, thought this info would help you track down some search bugs!

I just posted this in a "new site design" feedback thread... I am posting it here too for future reference because search is a critical aspect to OSx86 and proper use of this forum... but search features built-in to this site continue to suck....


I was searching for a BadAxe1 RAID installatoin note thread I created months ago...

Compare what the Google search field at the top of the site returns for "bofors + badaxe + vanilla + raid":

- http://www.insanelym.....anilla + raid

(2 results, neither is what I was looking for.)

With direct use of Google with "site:insanelymac.com bofors + badaxe + vanilla + raid"

- http://www.google.co...i...-8&oe=UTF-8

(129 results, the first one is exactly what I was looking for.)

I suppose we could just blame Google here, but we are supposed on the cutting of edge of technology here.

Can't we search within the forum software?

Google doesn't find posts within seconds right after they have been posted, and Google is never guaranteed to be exhaustive.
Why not just use the forum's own search function?

Too bad search has been broken for over a year...

The error returned was:

same problem here, it used to work after trying it 3-5 times, but now the search function just keeps showing:

too bad as the search function is really something crucial!

It's been added to the tracker now. Hope it'll be solved soon since this site has gone too long without a decent search.

I get faaar too often the red banner with the error.

I search the word 'server' in the OSX Snow forum, or the full post title= OSX server 10.6 succesfull install
or some of the words of 'title' and I get the red error banner. Must I always include the & between the words? or shall I always type "OSX server 10.6 succesfull install"

with the quotes?

How should I search in order to get results?
many thanks iA

PS: I dont want to resort to google.... :)
