Re: run away processes.

Hi Chris,

Do you really need it ?
I guess you can install the components of kde-extras manually, without beagle...

I never heard such problems with kmail before.
Are you on a dialup or is your network (wlan?) suffering from huge latency ?

Still you could try, for example, a smart mailer like Sylpheed-claws, which has 
great advanced featues for custom filtering and actions, or (more common but 
not smart) evolution or thunderbird.

Weird. Are you sure it's not kernelspace or the sound backend (like alsa) 
causing problems ? Yet, you can tune down the level of desktop sounds 
in kcontrol.

Openoffice always had some minor problems, in my experience, expecially 
wiuth window managers. But it's not eassy to keep such a complex thing ready 
for different OS and archs...But there is no real alternative. Be patient.

Not even ctrl alt F1 possible ? Weird.

Make sure there are no kernel problems behind (look into kern.log and dmesg).
