I am compiling LFS system, and i have compiled KDE 3.5.10 ( stable LFS suggest 3.5.9, but kde.org doesn't share it anymore). Everything went fine, but after i started kde the whole processor power was shared equally by kdesktop, kicker and kded. Additional kde-based programs like kate also eat as much processor as they can, when started. Strangely enough, konsole works quite well.
Except huge performance loss everything seems to work quite fine. There are no system log entries that i could relate to this problem.
I tried to ssh with X-tunneling from a different computer to check if it's not a fault of X-server. However, newly started kde was still eating CPU power. In reverse case (ssh connection from my computer to another one) everything was fine - i guess my X server has it's alibi then
Now i am thinking about either trying to compile kde 3.9 and see if problem remains, or recompiling kde 3.10 with debugging symbols and trying to figure out what it is doing all the time. As both compilations are quite time-consuming, i don't know which option is better.
What else I could do to find a source of this problem?
