    I just installed Safari 3 beta and Spotlight stopped working!? I rebooted again but no effect. I used it right before the installation of Safari 3, and it worked flawlessly! But now it doesn't work any more? Any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: I just found out that I can search in Finder, but neither the menubar-Spotlight, nor the Spotlight-Window I get when pushing CTRL+Option+Command works.

    Open a terminal window and do this:

    sudo mdutil -s /

    If what it returns is that spotlighting is turned on for / (the boot drive), then do:

    sudo mdutil -E /

    If it tells you it's turned off, then do:

    sudo mdutil -i on /
    sudo mdutil -E /
