Same exact problem here.

Also I find that when mousing over and selecting different things on the K-menu there's a noticable performace lag.

Fedora 1 with kernel 2.6.1.

It comes and goes, sometimes it does it a couple times a minute, sometimes it's fine for hours.

I find that when it happens, if you hit Esc or Control after about 5 or 10 seconds it'll unstick it... which is a workaround, but still sucks. Sometimes when I want to launch a program I have to do this two or three times before it'll actually launch.

Also I find that sometimes when I try to minimize or open a window using the taskbar, I have to click two or three times before it actually opens. I bet the two probelms are related.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but if anyone has a solution I'd love to hear it.

If that works for you that's probably a good route to go. I'm a newbie to running Linux on the desktop--this is my first system--and things have been going pretty well otherwise. It's strange that no one else seems to run into this--I've got a very stock install, nothing different at all except kernel 2.6.1 and a bunch of multmedia apps installed.

If I keep the same installation do you think upgrading to 2.6.2 is a good idea?

Thanks for the help.

I was having the freeze up problem after I upgraded to KDE 3.2 what I did to cure it was to login to a Gnome session and rename the .kde folder to .kde.old then I logged back into kde and let it create a new folder. I haven't had any problems with it since(knock on wood). YMMV but its something for you to try.
