Infinite konsole loading

I've just installed kde from the slack cd. I didnt include it before since im planning to install dropline. Then Ive noticed that dropline loads my cpu too much-moving windows from side to side of the screen raises the cpu load 30-50%. That is just not acceptable.

Back on the topic. Since no readme file is in the directory of KDE ( im too lazy to look in the other folders) i just typed in "installpkg *.pkg " Everything worked except when i log in as non root and open the konsole, it wont stop loading one after another. Can someone enlighten me on what i need to do.

Well, that's no fun.

How do you finally stop Konsole from loading? Logging out?
This doesn't happen as root?

Have you tried more than one user?

This has got to be something really simple but obscure...

It already stopped. Thanks to a pop up help interrupt (for whatever reason it stopped the konsoles) ). I closed all the 25 konsoles it opened so far then closed the help. It never happened again. Perhaps another mystery in life that will no longer be solved.

Maybe a small hardware problem cause you to open a bunch of konsoles when you clicked on it? do you use a wireless mouse?

I once had a major problem that caused my computer to crash because of a small hardware issue, I pressed "ctrl + T" to open a new window in netcape and my keyboard stoped working right at the moment I pressed T, so netscape keept opening many tabs really fast until my computer frooze, this was in WIN98 though.

i dont think so. KDE saves my session everytime i logged out. Hence my infinite konsoles get loaded even after reboot. Thats is without doing anything at all. After a few restart i gave up and logged in as root.
