Question Semi-hang or partial freeze. KDE


Hi there,

it is some months I am having an annoying problem with KDE: after a certain amount of time, it partially freezes.

- I can still use opened windows: type input, scroll them, etc...
- I can't use any opened "konsole" window: its content becomes gray and the window unresponding
- I can switch between virtual desktop
- I can't use the panel: when clicking on anything, it will respond after some seconds
- Amarok music playback continues, but when the track ends, it cannot load next one untile the system "unfreezes"

When the freeze ends the system resumes working normally and any "queueed" clicks are executed correctly.

My problem seems to be the same as described here:
http://forums.opensuse.org/showthrea...ial-freeze-KDE
I also have a nvidia network card and can't find any error on dmesg/syslog.

Does anyone has experienced the same problem? Any ideas on how to solve it?

Thank you

I would boot to console level (level 3 in most distros) and type startx to run X on terminal 1. Then when the freeze starts,you can hit Ctrl_Salt_F1 to check for errors to stdout.

You can also log in on another terminal and run top,which tells you what is hogging the CPU.
