Angry kdeinit4 - 100% CPU load


Hello guys!
There are thousands of threads in the Internet about kdeinit4 problem and I searched them for a solution but all I got is: it's a bug, accept it. There is this solution here and I added
Code:
[DirWatch]
PollInterval=60000
as plamaiziere said, but this changed nothing.

So kdeinit4 loads my CPU 100%. Maybe someone has figured out how to prevent this from happening? I use IceWM but have KDE fully installed because I use a lot of apps from KDE group. And this happens every day. Does anyone have any solution?

Hi,

Actually, there were some OLD bugs with KDE3's kdeinit, but I thought things were pretty stable in contemporary versions of KDE/X11/kernels.

Anyway, please try this (relatively simple) fix, and see if it helps:

That link on clearing tmp cache didn't work for me. I tried lots of how-to's that I found on forums and a blog or two, (editing that autostart file that I can't even remember the name of, to change 'true' to 'false', something about notify), and nothing worked but to sigkill it.
What fixed it for good was upgrading to KDE 4.7.1, which I was able to do in Fedora 15.

I am on Arch and yes - updating KDE to latest one helps. That's just KDE, what can I say...

Hi Mr. Alex,

Glad to hear it! In the past week I was able narrow the problem down. For me, using dial up, it was ntrack-011. I also compiled ntrack-014 and same problem. I looked to see if ntrack was installed in Fedora KDE 4.7.1 and it isn't.
Looking at ntrack at launchpad site, they have been working on patches for it. And, the upcoming version, 015 is supposed to have this problem fixed, but it isn't released yet. For the time being, I have removed it in my other KDE Linux distro (manually removed /usr/lib/libntrack*, which is about five files.) I also removed /usr/lib/ntrack/modules/ntrack-libnl1.so. A dirty fix, but I couldn't remove it via package manager as it is a dependency of a bunch of other KDE applications.
Regards, Orba
