Run away, as in I have to <CNTL><ALT><F1> to get a console to kill the process
to get my desktop to move again. I run htop to find a process running
at %100 cpu usage.
Ok I've got a program called kerry that runs a daemon: beagled - this dang
thing uses up-to %50 of both cpus.
Then there is: kio_pop3 running from Kontact/Kmail. This Kmail has been a
problem for almost 2 years, over 2 installs, first it didn't download mail,
now that has given way to just consuming resources up to 100% at times, so I
have to kill it.
Then there is artsd, but that doesn't happen all that often, but will
definitely eat more than it's share, but not by much.
Openoffice.org once and a while will entirely stop the desktop to the point I
need to ssh in to restart KDM. This only happens when I click on the Menu
item: 'File' when I don't have a blinking cursor on the document. (I guess
this should be my first clue not to use it!)
Thanks for your interest,
