Akonadi goes on a resource-rampage
I'd just upgraded (rather, fresh install) to Kubuntu 10.10 two months back. For the record, I'd also installed xfce4 package (not xubuntu-dekstop) a few days back.. For the past few days, every time I start my computer and log into the kde desktop, it got very sluggish, and froze with the system monitor widgets recording a ramp-like increase in RAM usage and CPU being constantly at 100%.
A glance at the system monitor showed akonadi-contacts to be the culprit, and I killed it. Everything returned to normal, but problem persisted with every login. I even tried disabling it from services. I also removed it from the packages but kde also got removed along with it, and I had to reinstall KDE from apt. But even after reinstalling kde the problem was back.
At wits end what to do. Please help!
PS: I dont use akonadi for anything so good riddance options also welcome
