Thread: Kdeinit4/tracker-miner hogs CPU for ages after login

  1. #1

    Default Kdeinit4/tracker-miner hogs CPU for ages after login

    My configuration is OpenSuSE 11.4/KDE4/32bit.

    I am noticing that for about 20 minutes (or more) after first login every time there is a process which takes 100% CPU for most of the time and, of course, slows everything down. The system monitor suggests it is the 'tracker-miner' process (whatever that is). Do I need the tracker-miner? What good does it do? Is there any way to stop it (not to start it)?

    Would it make any difference if I switched to gnome?

    Please - one thread only per problem. I note you have a similar thread here: Slow startup after login

    Yes, it is beginning to look like the same problem. Are you able to delete this thread? Sorry for the duplication.
