Is it just me, or is it very hard to find using the search function patterns in the forum:

like:
"check hard disk"

search will check afterwards only for "disk"
instead of posts where all three words are met.

can we get an improvement ?

I would tell you that you need to search better (this problem has been reported and explained many, many times) but since the search sucks, I doubt that you would be able to find it... ;)

Do what most of us do. Use google advanced search with "only return results from" forums.gentoo.org

Moved from Gentoo Forums Feedback to Duplicate Threads, we're working on a new search engine which should make searches more user-friendly. Please have a look at these topcis for more information on the search function including why we strip some search terms:
