Le chat bleu November 7, 2012

Yesterday KDE crashed big time, it was my fault I had many applications opened (gimp with various illustrations opened, firefox with many tabs, a text editor and a terminal with pyton and htop)  — it’s not the first time this happened, and the symptoms are always the same :

I try to switch from one application to the other, and then the system got really slow, the mouse cursor starts to lag, and the HD is grinding and grinding and even when I try to desperately open a console – usually the system is so slow I receive a message saying the 60s delay is passed and I’m stuck… It’s tough because I don’t know what is causing this recurring issue – it can happen anytime ; and because of the nature of this weird intermittent issue – I’m starting to get a bit

I thought optimizing KDE would help – it did because as the system use less space – it seems that the crash are less common.

The last thing in my control, is to be more disciplined and not to open too many application at a time (less than 3) – which is a bit frustrating, but actually help a bit because it means working in a less messy manner.

Anyway here’s another cat, I’ll do more – cats are cool, and they have this calming effect which I really need right now.
