I am running up to date 12.1 64bit on a core2 quad with 4gB RAM.
I always have Chrome open, with quite a few tabs; other applications vary.
Every so often (every hour or so) the desktop becomes completely unresponsive, there’s a lot of disk thrashing for a few minutes, then it all returns to normal.
I thought it might be a disk indexing application but Nepomuk shows it is not running.
What else might it be? Is it Google checking out my disks?
Any help gratefully received.
I’ve found it difficult to run top since the mouse and kbd are both unresponsive.
I’ve seen some instances of akonadi and nepomuk running though at various times, so I’ve stopped krunner using the nepomuk plug-in, and I’ve stopped the akonadi daemon/server from running on startup. If there are any side effects I’ll report back.
