and another happy camper reports that Eric's excellent work with KDE4.4.0 is greatly appreciated...significantly snappier response than KDE4.3 that is in -current, on an IBM R51 laptop...difficulties I had getting to his site today and yesterday were as a result of an overheating laptop that finally locked up this aft...oh well...more futzing around to come...where is that tube of thermal paste?

alien bobs kde 4.4 was really running smooth on my lenovo s10e netbook.
file indexing and serverdeamons disabled offcourse and with the the netbook desktop composition and eyecandy to the max it hardly took more of the system then xfce does on stable.
i think that his work on this is gonna generate some new slackers.
his firewall script generator adaptation is awesome.

Just my 2cents
don't forget to blacklist the files, so they won't be downgraded the next time you upgrade to the latest current

Well, I've upgraded to 'current' and installed KDE 4.4, and overall things are running very well.
So far I see kmix has taken a step backwards, i.e., you can no longer split the channels.
Akonadi and nepomuk/strigi are still a P-I-T-A. When in use there were upwards of 15 - 20 instances running in the process table and 50 to 100% of the CPU was being used. As with earlier versions of KDE 4.xx, un-installing akonadi and disabling nepomuk/strigi solved the problem.

Many thanks to Alien Bob for making the files available.

Not to mention the 128MB of database transaction logs in ~/.local/share/akonadi/db_data. (But that's under 4.3.4, not using 4.4 on this box yet, so it might be a little different).

When I think that my first PC hard disk was smaller than the amount of space it's using merely for logging... well, it makes you think.

I second the issue with KMix - I don't have access to my capture selectors anymore and have to use alsamixer. Other than that, 4.4 is great - thanks Eric.

Right-click on a channel slider - you will find a menu item to split the channel into two sliders.

In the channel selector, drag the capture channel from the left pane (available) to the right pane (visible).

Hi Eric, there are no specific capture options in the channel selectors - they are actually part of the channel itself. But I used the right-click method on the mic boost channel to get them back - thanks.
