Has anyone tried linking a user's KDE cache dir to a tmpfs?
I have tmpfs mounted on /tmp with no problems so far.
Interesting is the usage of different tmp directories for links in ~/.kde:
cache-linux -> /var/tmp/kdecache-hendrik
socket-linux -> /tmp/ksocket-hendrik
tmp-linux -> /tmp/kde-hendrik
Looking at /var/tmp/kdecache-hendrik, there is some konqueror stuff but
nothing that could speed it up a lot.
I can get hit pretty bad when kbuildsycoca kicks in, typically when I
do an upgrade then go offline (wwwoffle rebuilding its index,
apt/dpkg, ...) and the output of top indicates that disk i/o is the
bottleneck (both the idle and wait Cpu stats >0.0%).
It may turn out that only those with lots of RAM and not a lot of cpu
cycles would benefit.
