dolphin slow wildly down when copy files

on my dell xps M1530 dualcore duo 2.2GHz 4GB ram 500GB harddisk suse 11.3 KDE 4.4 and KDE4.6beta1, when I copy big or a big number of files (20 or 30 files 500MB each) dolphin slow wildly down,
especially when I copy from a smb:// to my disk, dolphin start immediately to copy but when I click on a tab or a folder (a one that I didn’t opened before) dolphin shows it to me after a couple of minutes:shame:, is it possible to solve??

Hello pier_andreit,

I also experience such slowdowns not only in dolphin but also in Konqueror.
It only happens when copying large number of files/folders.

The only solution I found is copy from the commandline.
Or you could copy parts instead of all in one go.

From my experience this problem especially appears when copying a large number of files to a external drive or via network.

Best of luck!:wink:

Same here, but its interesting updating to a more modern Kernel(.36 & .37) that issue does not occur here more!!

where repo did you pick up your new kernel?? is it stable?

Yes,
software.opensuse.org: Search Results

Search by Kernel Desktop, then it will yield a lot of kernels, the lastet kernel is : 3.6.36, click on Click-Install (an install like windows installers, accept the news repositories if you does not have them already and click next until finish).

PS: remember if you use:

  • Virtualbox you need to uninstall e install again to VirtualBOx use the correct and new Kernel and not the old one.

  • Broadcom wireless drivers does not have yet a version to this kernel!

Any problem I will try help!!

this method seems rather dangerous to me, especially if you include users’
home directories in the search. you’ll never know how stable or even
useable the particular kernels you find may be. i’ve had good experience
using the latest kernel from

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/ 

they have been working well for the last several months for me.

Yeah, I would suggest if you does not use Virtualization(VMware, VirtualBox …), because wireless just works on actual(.34) kernel!!

PS: Kernel .37 is the best kernel I ever seen, huge and modern drivers compatibility and fast load!!

Please, do not advertise the use of the HEAD repo as a solution to all issues, or as a means to raise performance. The kernels in the HEAD repo are under heavy development, considered experimental and not for production use.

did you read the previous messages? i did not advertise it, but
recommended it over wildly searching OBS for any kernel that might be
sitting in someone’s home directory. apart from that i have been using
HEAD kernels for several months, with not one failure. still, the safest
is, of course, to use the standard kernel.

I think the openSUSE repository Rolling Release will use kernel .37 as default !! >:)

Regarding about the main question:

Kernel Stable : 6.34 & 6.36
Kernel In Development: .6.37 (some few weeks it will release the official stable version)

Yeah, the main purpouse of this repository is stability :'(.

I will keep use factory on 11.4 bywhile!!! rotfl!

In regarding the topic, both you and me, were forgotten!! lol

good project to have a repo with “stable cutting edge” software :slight_smile:
I looked here for suse 11.3 Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.3 and there are a lot of kernels, may be this ok?
kernel-desktop-2.6.37-rc3.git6.9.1.x86_64.rpm
did you try this?
I think I can try in my factory parttion, I use it for my newby experiment not for production:), if I insert repo, then I install this kernel by yast, is then automatic everything? does my system start with the new kernel? or I have to do something?
then I looked here for suse factory, Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_Factory/x86_64
I suppose this kernel-desktop-2.6.37-rc3.git6.9.2.x86_64.rpm is for suse 11.4

Sorry,

The default kernel is Kernel Desktop, add the repository(to auto-update) to Yast and install it!

If you want the old kernel and new installed on the same openSUSE version, install the kernl through the rpm package on site repository, on boot will appear :

openSUSE .6.34
openSUSE .6.37

Enjoy, Kernel 37 is amazing!! :stuck_out_tongue:
