aaah, that tracker thing is like strigi for kde, it indexes all your files for 
fast searching i think, The way I stopped it was to yum install tracker-ui-
tools (which isn't installed by) default, and took out the directories it 
scans in there, and it doesn't start anymore for me, or you can just get rid 
of the relevant .desktop files in /etc/xdg/autostart, but they'll reappear 
after updates.

try tracker-ui-tools first and then you'll have a preferences tool to 
hopefully shut it off
