I can search and find anything on Spotlight, so I think my index works. However, when I try to open an application, even terminal, I just get a spinning beach ball until Spotlight disappears. Why am I having this problem?

  • There are probably more details required to get to the bottom of this. Does the problem occur directly after a reboot as well? Did you try to rebuild your Spotlight index? Is there anything of interest in /var/log/system.log? If you change to another user (create one if necessary), does the same problem occur there? – nohillside Dec 16 '15 at 19:52
  • Actually my log says this Dec 16 11:48:05 JonatharantsMBP coreduetd[65]: CoreData: error: (11) Fatal error. The database at /var/db/CoreDuet/coreduetd.db is corrupted. SQLite error code:11, 'database disk image is malformed' Dec 16 11:48:05 JonatharantsMBP coreduetd[65]: Core Data: error: -executeRequest: encountered exception = Fatal error. The database at /var/db/CoreDuet/coreduetd.db is corrupted.

  • An issue not completely unknown to the mighty Google, me thinks :-) I didn't even know this database existed till 5 minutes ago, so honestly I don't know how to fix this. discussions.apple.com/thread/6617864?start=0&tstart=0 indicates that there might also be a coreduetd log file (check with Console.app). – nohillside Dec 16 '15 at 20:09
