    Question Dolphin is too slow

    Hello evreybody

    I'd like to understand why my Dolphin version is so slow. I have the time to open directories or files with konqueror a long time before Dolphin even reacts . I'm skipping Dolphin and replacing it with Konqueror from Kde3 so far, but it's not really as convenient as it's supposed to be.
    How come ? Am i not using the right Dolphin or something ?

    $ dolphin --version
    Qt: 4.4.0
    KDE: 4.1.1 (KDE 4.1.1) "release 31.3"
    Dolphin: 1.1


    I noticed something strange by the way :
    zypper up kde4-dolphin says it 's not installed but zypper se kde4-dolphin says it is , and zypper up dolphin says its not installed (but this is true for dolphin is older than kde4-dolphin) :

    # zypper up dolphin
    Lecture des paquets installs...
    Le paquet 'dolphin' n'est pas install.
    Rien faire.
    linux-p5b5:/home/fabrice # zypper up kde4-dolphin
    Lecture des paquets installs...
    Le paquet 'kde4-dolphin' n'est pas install.
    Rien faire.
    linux-p5b5:/home/fabrice # zypper se kde4-dolphin
    Lecture des paquets installs...

    Dolphin is very slow for me, too. I keep hoping updates will fix it.

    Is is possible that this has something to do with nepomuk? I found that was hogging resources and bringing my system to a crawl. Aren't they related?

    With the Nepomuk semantic desktop enabled, Dolphin becomes so slow it is unusable. Disabling it resolves the slow down.
