OpenSUSE :: Tracker Store Burning CPU And Thrashing Disk?

Sep 24, 2010

I've noticed tracker-store burning CPU and thrashing disk when I login to a KDE session. I'm tempted to disable it by modifying /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop. But before I do that, what added value does it bring to the party? It seems like it's mainly involved with desktop indexing, which I never use (does anyone?).

OpenSUSE :: Hard Disk Thrashing, Esp After Boot?

Apr 24, 2011

Acer Travelmate laptop, 1.3GHz Pentium M, 12MB Ram.pensuse 11.4 (upgraded from 11.3)Vanilla install, not running anything special, always startup and shutdown from scratch, never sleepFor several minutes after KDE appears and I open an app (any app, e.g. Chrome) the hard disk is going nuts. WTF is it doing and how do I stop it? Also some programs take years to start, e.g. digicam took TEN minutes the other day even after waiting a while after booting, the disk thrashing the whole time. But in 11.3 it started almost instantly.

Ubuntu :: Flash Plugin Causes Disk Thrashing?

Mar 28, 2011

Recently I have found myself getting terrible disk thrashing, to the point that my desktop is almost uncontrollable. I have found that killing the plug-in container task (I'm using 64-bit Firefox 4) brings the thrashing to an end. In other words it's a problem to do with Flash.

Debian Installation :: Hard Disk Thrashing With Squeeze?

Apr 22, 2010

Just loaded Squeeze (KDE) onto a partition on my desktop and am a bit alarmed by the disk thrashing thats going on? Damn light on constantly. if I didn't know better I'd think I was using Vista. Is this something to do with 'nepomukservices' that seems to be taking a fair amount of cpu time? Not used to KDE 4 so maybe this is normal.

Ubuntu :: Disk Thrashing/apps Freezing For Approx 30 Seconds

Sep 8, 2010

I've been having this issue since at least 9.10. I'm randomly encountering disk thrashing and application freezing which lasts around 30 seconds. Some applications seem to encounter this more often than others. Firefox and Picasa are pretty reliable at reproducing the issue. It also happens often when I'm using Transmission. CPU usage is not unusually high during the 'thrashing' sessions. Running iotop hasn't shed any light on the problem either. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this or maybe someone could give me some clues. I'm running a dell inspiron 530 with ubuntu 10.04 64bit. I have 4gb of ram. Here is my 'df -h' if that is helpful.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

OpenSUSE Install :: When Verifying A Disk After Burning Suse On It It Keeps Giving Errors

Nov 20, 2009

I've been trying to burn Suse 11.2 to a DVD now for a couple of days but I keep running into trouble. When verifying a disk after burning Suse on it it keeps giving me errors. I've tried Nero and ImgBurn, different burners, different ISOs, different burning speeds (downloaded via torrent and http) but it keeps giving me the verification error.

The only thing I haven't tried is a different brand of DVDs but until now I've never had any problems with this brand.

Debian Multimedia :: Control GNOME Tracker For External Hard Disk

Jun 10, 2015

I would like some info regarding an external backup hard drive I use. This carries a lot of text and sound files that I need frequent access to, and I would like to be able to quickly search on that drive using the standard GNOME tracker search facilities. The drive is connected via USB and mounted to /media/hhrutz/Mnemo2.

I have the following questions:

- the database is maintained on my laptop's harddrive in $HOME/.cache/tracker and $HOME/.local/share/tracker/data, correct?- therefore, it would not be a problem for the tracker to update its data if I decided to mount the harddrive in read-only mode?- is it possible to get an overview about the size of the database?- do I have to keep the button "Include removable media" in the "Indexing Preferences" checked?

In other words, is this harddrive understood as a removable media?- if so, can I exempt this drive from "Garbage Collection". That is, I generally do _not_ want to index for example USB thumb drives and such, so I use the default 3-days expiry settings. Does that mean, all the gathered data from my backup harddrive will be gone if I don't connect that drive every two days? Can I prevent that? Because the indexing takes extremely long

I also notice that while the tracker is spinning my harddisk, it doesn't ever seem to advance. It stays at "1%":

General :: Where Does ITunes Store Its Stuff - Copy Its Data Store To An External Drive

Dec 8, 2009

I have two students whose windows laptops are riddled with malware and not working properly. They want me to help them install Linux (which we use in school), but they are concerned about their iTunes.

Having avoided iPods as "defective by design", I know nothing about iTunes whatsoever. However I remember reading about DRM locking and such problems that have me concerned that I won't be able to do it.

Where does iTunes store its stuff?

Can I copy its data store to an external drive, and then into a linux home?

Then will it work on wine, or can another manager (rhythmbox etc) access the itunes data?

Alternatively, if I partition the drive and install linux, can rythmbox/wine/something access itunes data on the win partition?

Supposing they are buying music through iTunes, what will happen to that account?

Finally, one of them has an iphone. Does that work with linux?

Ironic that an apple application is blocking migration away from windows.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kdeinit4/tracker-miner Hogs CPU For Ages After Login?

Mar 29, 2011

My configuration is OpenSuSE 11.4/KDE4/32bit. I am noticing that for about 20 minutes (or more) after first login every time there is a process which takes 100% CPU for most of the time and, of course, slows everything down. The system monitor suggests it is the 'tracker-miner' process (whatever that is). Do I need the tracker-miner? What good does it do? Is there any way to stop it (not to start it)?

Software :: K3b Burning - Not "see" A Disk In The Drive

Apr 26, 2011

In the past after I inserted a blank cdr into the drive, it showed up as an icon on the desktop. Now that doesn't happen. The drive reads the cdr for a while then the light goes from green to yellow and the drive continues to attempt to read the blank disk --indefinitely.

I am running Ubuntu and have two drives: a master cdrw drive and a slave dvd-rom drive. Both drives read data disks fine (i.e. cds with mp3's on them, knoppix cds etc). Neither K3b nor Brasereo "see" a disk in the drive.

Networking :: UDP Thrashing (140 Times Every Second)

Jan 12, 2010

My ADSL router NAT's any computer behind it here at home. I have a PC or two a Sun ultra10 and ultra5 and E450 etc.

The problem is my PC reports via "tcpdump -i eth0" that
22:54:47.035683 IP > UDP, length 1292
is going on 140 times every second.

How do I prevent this from continuing and why is it happening? If possible I don't want to invoke iptables as my NAT router does a fine firewall job.

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - K3B Burning Data And ISO Files

Jan 4, 2010

K3B burning data and ISO files. Disc Media:Datawrite DVD & CD Discs

Old Box
OS: WinXP Pro SP3 32bit
Burning Software:Nero
Mobo:Asrock P4V88+
Processor:AMD AthlonXP 2800+ Single Core CPU
Memory:2GB DDR
Optical Drive:NEC DVD RW ND-4550A (2x, 4x & 8x write speeds)

My Current / Old box (WinXP)can burn 2.9GB of data over a LAN from a mapped drive using Nero in 7 minutes and maintain file & directory names as they are complete with upper and lower characters, spaces between words and special characters without shortening file / directory names out of the box. My new box (SuSE 11.2) was initially incapable of burning anything, ?Access Denied? I added the user to the cdrom group this allowed the burning of data but the process changed file and directory names. It changed all letters to capitols, replaced blank spaces and special characters with underscores. I still can?t burn ISO files, ?Access Denied?. The time it took to burn the 2.9GB of data on the hard drive of the SuSE install was sort of acceptable but a full 5 to 6 minutes longer and I was forced to shorten file names too.

I changed a setting to allow the full ascii character set hoping this would preserve file and directory names as they are during the burn process. I changed a setting to allow long file names too. I now have another problem, on starting the burn process and after a minute'sh K3B displayed the fact that it was going to take over 1 ? hours to finish! Yikes. After an hour it was going to take a further 2hrs and 10mins. This didn't include read varify. I aborted the burn process, this can?t be correct. I placed the LG drive in my old box, burn process took a second or two less than 7mins to complete using the same data over the same LAN. I've tested the drive for hardware errors, the drive is perfect. Am i missing something, failing to do something or doing things wrong. Is the optical drive or some other component incompatible in some way.

I'll be burning many gigabytes of data on a daily basis and i'm hoping to be able to burn a full DVD disc of mixed data types in less than 10mins whilst preserving the full ascii character set, file & directory names inc special characters and blank spaces. I still need to resolve my "access denied" problem when trying to burn ISO files too.

OpenSUSE :: CD-R Burning Fails After OPC Check

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.3 With/without Burning?

Nov 30, 2010

i've decided that i wanna learn a bit of linux, and so i tried to install suse... i've come to have a lot of problems:i downloaded both the KDE Live CD and the DVD (4++ gb), both 64 bit.i dunno about the software there, but should i get the 32 bit version becouse is more likely they works or the 64 bit is fine?

what i'd like to do is overwrite my windows 7 (basically get rid of it, only way for me to use linux).i tried installing from Live CD (burned) but it does not seems to work, tried the USB thing but still something is wrong, is like is not recognized... i can't burn 4++ gb so i was wondering if there is a way to use the ISO w/o burning it... ofc i tried but in the boot menu it asks for a CD so nothing to do.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Brasero Not Burning DVD's 11.3?

Jul 19, 2010

Today i tried to burn a dvd but i failed. When i was adding the folders, brasero poped up a message saying that it need to rename some files to make them windows compatible,i accepted the change and proceed. Everything was looking good, but qhen it tried to burn, brasero said it cannot burn the image and failed. Asked if i want to save the log file and i did it, but it has no info!

I tried diferent combinations to burn the dvd (removing the files that need to be renamed, even i tried to burn the files to a iso image) and alwas fail exactly with te same error in the same step.I instaled the gstreamer packages from packman and all looks good.Any idea whats going on? Also, if someone has the same problem, maybe it's a bug in brasero that needs to be reported: if so, how can i get usefull info to report it?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - What Process Start Thrashing HD

Nov 20, 2010

ubuntu 10.10 At times something starts thrashing the HD. Often after the computer has been taken out of Suspension. The whole things slows down and stays slow. This can be fixed by logging off (which takes quite a while under this condition while the HD light stays on, solid) and logging back on. Then the system becomes responsive, with only HD light flickers. Anyway, I can't determine what process is doing the thrashing. System Monitor doesn't show any memory problems, and neither do top or htop. htop shows plenty of swap space available, and memory usage is on par with what it looks like when there is no thrashing. Is there some tool that can display what processes are running the HD so hard?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: X11 Backing Store Under Suse 11.3

Dec 14, 2010

I have just installed a new 11.3 machine which should replace my old one with suse 9.2.

I have some X11 applications which require backing store support. Under 9.2 I added Option "BackingStore" "True" to section "Device" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

With 11.3 the arrangement of the X server has changed. I added Option "BackingStore" "True" to file 50-device.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. This was enough to activate backing store when a window is partially obscured by another window, but the content of the window is lost : (1) when the window is iconized; (2) when the window is moved to another desktop (I am using fvwm). It is not lost when it is moved to another page in same desktop.

Are there any other options to obtain a backing store working as it used to do in 9.2 (window content was always preserved).

OpenSUSE Install :: Checking The Iso Download Before Burning To DVD?

Nov 12, 2009

Check of Suse 11.2 iso Download

I am a bit unsure of checking the iso download before burning to DVD.


Before you burn your CD/DVD images, you should check the files for errors. Two files named *.iso.md5 and *.iso.sha1 are available. These files contains hashes for each ISO image that is available from that download location. The relevant line would look like the following:

8abac6680ecc152f103006b02f9ff67f some.iso

To be sure that download did not contain any errors, you should create this number using MS5 or SHA1 algorithm for your own ISO image.

Using Linux
On Linux, run one of the command,:
md5sum some.iso
sha1sum some.iso

If there is any difference between the output of the checksum command and the above number, the download is broken and should be repeated.'

Is some a linux command?

I assume it is run at the same location as the download?
