Annoying KDE crash alert and endless timer in taskbar question.
I have mandriva 2006 installed and I love it but I have 2 problems.
1.After I update(I checked all available),not immediatly but within a few hours of use I start getting kde crash alerts.Signal 11,SIGPFE if I remember correctly.
I managed to do a backtrace and saw a few qt entries.
I can knock the alerts down to the taskbar but the crash alerts increase in frequency from 1 every 5 seconds to ? thousands per second?Once they start I have about 2 minutes before they are so fast they freeze my system.Cursor wont move.I can restart and get about 2 more minutes of lagged use before freeze.
I've re-installed twice and this doesnt start until I update.Last time I only choose security updates and bug fixes.
2.With a "stock" install(no updates)when I start a program the hourglass starts working in the taskbar.The programs open(doesnt matter which one),I use them,and then close them and the hourglass is still spinning until I guess the default timer expires(About 30 seconds)then it will go away,or if the program is still open it changes to the normal box w/program name.
This is what I was trying to fix by updating.
It does get fixed by the way but soon after the crash alert mudslide hits.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
