    Default What bacground process does SUSE have?


    Every now and then some app starts thrashing the hard drive and slowing
    the whole system to a grinding halt? What's going on ? Does SUSE have
    any background management app's? And how do I turn them off?
    I wonder if this is something to do with swapping as this laptop only
    has 512mb?

    Acer aspire 1690

    Well that isn't much RAM for sure, but check out 'beagle'. There are
    quite a few posts on it among the forums but generally it could easily
    be doing this.

    Good luck.

    Just to add to ab`s post.

    Have a look in "Configure Desktop" ( personal settings ) and in the advanced tab there should be "Nepomuk" disable this as well as this does an index of the selected dirs and can cause slowdowns depending on you hardware.
