Thread: Kfmclient and use of CPU

    Default Kfmclient and use of CPU

    Hi!

    Opensuse 12.2 32 bits

    One user still using KDE3

    Top reports 75% CPU used by kfmclient

    PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
    30280 maria 20 0 42680 7972 6836 R 15,7 0,4 252:31.50 kfmclient
    13133 maria 20 0 42336 7060 5996 R 15,4 0,3 119:43.57 kfmclient
    13724 maria 20 0 42336 7060 5996 R 15,4 0,3 83:21.36 kfmclient
    3158 maria 20 0 42352 5372 4452 R 15,1 0,3 3984:38 kfmclient
    23257 maria 20 0 42800 8408 7244 R 15,1 0,4 2401:20 kfmclient


    What the hell is kfmclient and why is eating all the cpu?

    I think the user is doing almost nothing.

    regards

    KDE3 is not supported in openSUSE 12.2 is what the heck is going on. I do see a thread here on installing KDE3 you might want to consult.

    https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...-5-12-2-a.html

    However, its our suggestion to use KDE 4.8 which is supported in the latest version of openSUSE 12.2.

    really?

    when did that change? anyway, this apparently up-to-date page says "KDE
    3 desktop is included as officially supported part of the distribution"
    http://en.opensuse.org/KDE3

    and that page includes a 1-Click install for openSUSE 12.2 as well as a
    pointer to the place where (perhaps) the best user help can be found,
    the KDE3 mail list (because it is on that list that the most
    knowledgeable KDE3 support is resident) ....i'd suggest the OP join that
    list and ask there..

    HOWEVER, i doubt the apparent kfmclient 'problem' has anything to do
    with the fact that KDE3 is in use..

    as to the "what is kfmclient" question, see (for example)
    http://techbase.kde.org/Development/...sing_kfmclient

    so, i'd **guess** user 'maria' is running (or has run) several different
    scripts without correctly closing down running processes when finished..

    but i could _easily_ be wrong, and the experts on the mail list might
    want/need a bug report!!

    I do't know if it was a kde3 problem or not but I've deleted KDE3 and I've switched the user to KDE4 and now the system flies in contrast with the previous behaviour

    So I presume by this post that the problem you had with KDE3 is no longer present since switching to KDE4? Obviously we have help in getting KDE3 to load into openSUSE 12.2, but if you have a problem with that, I would say good luck in getting the issue fixed. Anyone wanting to stick with KDE3 will be encouraged to help other users with any issues that might come up. The longer you stick with KDE3, the more like swimming upstream your efforts will become. None the less, loading KDE3 is an option supported by some in the community.
