I’m running 64 bit OpenSuse 11.2 on a Lenovo T61. I’m using the KDE4 desktop. And I have 4 GB of Ram.
I’ve noticed an odd situation.
I keep backup files on a large USB drive (750GB) and when I’m in the middle of transferring files, Kontact, the KDE-PIM, will not start. In this particular case, the files are being transferred from an NFS networked drive on another computer through my laptop to a USB drive plugged into the laptop.
It works fine if I start Kontact first, and then initiate the transfer. But if I shut down Kontact, and then try to start it, the icon bounces for a while and goes away. Nothing starts.
Any ideas on why this occurs? And how to fix it?
