k3b melts HDD


Hi everybody,
i'm using Gnome 2.6 on FC2 and i've been burning all my cds with k3b. Everything was working fine until yesterday. I tried to open k3b as usual and when the GUI opened, the HDD led on my case started to light without stoppping and everything started going reeeealy slow... I couldn't even shutdown or restart the pc. I had to shut it off after 15 mins (nothing changed). I opened it a couple of times again and same thing happened all the time.
I made no updates on the machine these days, except installing the libsig which was needed for inkscape...
Could anyone help me with this? I don't know where i could look for info. I checked the system logs but that didn't help me much.
Thanx in advance.

Check that you haven't run short of disk space on one of your linux drives... Maybe some temp file filled up the free space or something...

thanx for replying so quickly,
i thought about it but i checked my partitions and /home seems to be the most heavy loaded, but still, it has 1.1Gb free...
I gues that's a good amount of free space, so this shouldn't be the problem...
Is there any kind of log for k3b? I guess this would explain some things...

So, does the machine perform fine until you run k3b? or is it slow all the time now? Not sure but have you rebooted and it's still the same. Just trying to clarify.

Hmmm. maybe you need to go through your ~/.kde/share/config and ~/.kde/share/apps directories and remove the k3brc files (or rename them to back them up) and any other k3b stuff and trying running it again and reconfiguring it. Maybe some config got screwed up or it has something queued or something...
