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.

Software :: Cannot Uninstall Flash-plugin From Yast - Deleted Flash-Plugin Directory

Aug 15, 2010

In my frustration to get adobe flash working in firefox I deleted the /usr/lib/flash-plugin folder. Now when I try to uninstall "Flash-Plugin" from YAST it fails as it can't find the sub-folder. I also cannot install the latest version of flash player as it says that it is already installed - So I am stuck in a loop.

I am running SUSE 11.2.

Is there a config file of installed programs that I can modify to remove the "Flash-Plugin" entry, or is there another way to get over this problem.

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 :: 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
/dev/sda3 103G 26G 73G 26% /
none 2.0G 288K 2.0G 1% /dev

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.

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?).

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.6.12 - No Correct Flash Plugin

Dec 6, 2010

Ubuntu 10.10 - Flash 10 plugin - Firefox 3.6.12 (all latest versions of their kind). When I try to play programs from BBC iPlayer website, the message on the screen informs me that I don't have the correct Flash plug-in, I follow the links to download this, but of course my computer does have Flash 10 plug-in already installed. I have tried removing this and reinstalling both from the website link and from Ubuntu repository, but still cannot convince Firefox that I do indeed have the necessary Flash plug-in.
