KDE mountwatcher - Problem app?
I've managed to pin down a small problem with Mandrake 10.1 Official release - thought I'd share this with you.
I've noticed over the past month or so that something was slowing down my system. I installed 'Runaway process catcher' applet (it just sits on your kicker as a 'smiley' icon) :)
Noticed that the application kded is the problem. This seems to be (or be
associated with) kde mountwatcher. I did a Ctrl+Esc. and saw that it was using 80-83 percent of user resources and 17% of total system resources.
That's more than X is using!
I've tried re-nicing the process - not sure if this has really helped. Sometimes Konqueror will crash or Unreal Tournament 2004 will slow down a lot. I'm convinced this is the reason. If I kill the process, the system complains, but things mysteriously start working as expected. Thanks for reading :shock:
Re: KDE mountwatcher - Problem app?
Sorry, no solution from me. Just the same problem.
I am new to linux(for that matter any *x) and have no clue how to debug. But it is a very frustrating problem (I don't know how fingal finds it small :? For now, I am also resorting to killing the kded, but the system complains somethings and I fear something may break somewhere.
In any case, if anybody has a solution, please post.
