Subject: [gentoo-user] X slowed down; is it KDE?
Date: Sun, 21 Jan 2007 22:40:02

Since this morning, Fluxbox has been running very slowly. For
instance, when I start Eterm, it takes about 3 to 5 seconds. Every
single time. And conky shows X climbing up to 100% CPU usage until I
get the terminal window.

Could this be because of my failed attempt to compile KDE? Emerge
failed at kde-base/kdelibs a few times, after which I gave up. Some 20
packages had already been installed, but I can't really see a
connexion. Nor have I tried to unmerge them, hoping to continue
installing KDE at a point when I have the time to figure out what is

Thanks in advance,

How's my English? How about my Netiquette?
Do mail me if something is wrong with my behaviour. Thank you.
