Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71256
Knode is very slow and CPU-consuming
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:25 EDT
Description of Problem:
Limbo II - RH 7.3.93
Knode in KDE-3 is very slow. When 'creating lists' it uses very long time. The
CPU-usage is then over 90%, making it impossible to do anything else, the
machine is hardly responding.
This is not new in current RedHat beta, Knode in RedHat 7.3 has the same
Very long postings (7000lines, >300KB) takes many minutes to display, and when
scrolling down the message - at some point the text get messy and unreadable.
It eventually makes knode to hang (hav to kill it).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to be like this all the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start knode
2. downloading messages on a group - knode is now 'creating list' (and I may
have my dinner)
Very slow working knode
Very CPU-consuming knode
I would like knode to be faster (I don't think knode had this problem in
KDE-2). The CPU-consume while "thinking" is to high. If this is not getting
better, I will have to use a different news-program.
