Hi knowledgeable ones,

following my installation of TeXLive2009 via MacTeX on my MBP (C2D, 2.33 GH, 3 GB Ram, German OSX 10.6.2) I saw a lot of activity of mds and mdworker accompagnied by error-messages like this:

> 02.12.09 10:34:49	mdworker32[1446]	(Warning) Import: /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/doc/fonts/semaphor/test-context.tex could not be imported; Only a PPC importer plug-in was found.

Is there no intel-md-importer included? Googling around I found this file:


Someone had compiled the source (see http://www.apfeltalk.de/forum/spotlight-latex-files-t149052.html (German)).

I replaced my (PPC-only) "TeX.mdimporter" in Library/Spotlight (I have no recollection where this came from).

Is there some kind of _official_ mdimporter, universal or intel-only?

Thanks a bunch,
