Hiya guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me or point me in the right direction.
I have been noticing for a long time that whilst using konsole the output to the screen pauses for a long time if I do not give the CPU an interrupt (ie, move the mouse or tap a key).
This is very visible if I do an "ls -l" and some symbolic links are broken (the flashing is very bad).
It occurs whenever I type in a command. Sometimes a simple ls will look like it has hung, but 2 minutes later a mouse move or keypress will reveal the output.
I don't notice it while using other applications (I don't know if animations look smoother while moving the mouse or not), but it does puzzle me.
I've tried looking at the logs in /var/log and can't see anything specific, and searching google produces various rubbish about crashing - I must be missing a keyword.
I don't notice it in virtual terminal 2, so it must be X or KDE causing this problem, and it's not just konsole (I've used xterm and the odd pausing still happens).
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
(Currently I'm running Fedora 15, with KDE 4.6.5 - although I seem to remember it also happened in Fedora 13, and 14 - so I think it's a rogue setting and not just a version problem)
