kded and SIGFPE [solved]

Recommended Posts

I just installed Mandriva 2006 using kde and everything worked fine for a few days. Today, however when I logged into my account there were dozens of random .jpg, .gif and .bin files in my home directory. After rebooting and logging back in kde gives an error that:

 

The application KDE Daemon (kded) crashed and caused the signal 8 (SIGFPE).

 

I have tried to open a konsole and kill the source, but it is an infinite number of error windows popping up about every 10 seconds or so. This eats up 100% of the CPU and thus makes the computer useless. I tried logging into IceWM and the same thing. I could always install gnome but I really like KDE. Please help! :wall:

Sounds like the kat issue. First thing to do after a 2006 install is:

 

urpme kat

 

and this fixes a lot of the problems associated with speed decrease.

So far so good - after two reboots no errors yet. I will repost if I run into the problem again.

 

Before this post I had no idea what kat was, and now that I do it seems like a really cool application. Is there another workaround for the problem besides:

 

urpme kat

KAT is a desktop search app from what I know. However, it seems to cause so many problems, people always remove it and never have any further problems.
