    RE: suddenly I cannot log in to one of my users qt4
    after successful boot, I try to log into a user qt4. It goes along well and just before the background appears, I am suddenly back at the login screen (ice or broken glass) I am currently (for this post) using another user oracle. Thanks! The secure file is fresh being made since boot. I never got into qt4. I can now su - qt4 without problem. This started yesterday 10 Feb . I do frequent yum updates. oracle and qt4 are nearly identical. the secure file is attached above!. My profile image is intended to evoke frivolity

    what is tracker-store?
    It is dominating my CPU even when I am doing no RDB access I have no idea what any form of tracker store does why add overhead to existing database read/write I use OCI for Oracle and it is the fastest I use Qt APIs for MySQL I use MS APIs for SQL Server sounds like ODBC which is well known to be slow How can I shut it off besides using kill -9 It eats my CPU even when I am doing no RDB access

    RE: xscreensaver is NOT automatically starting as F14
    Generally the screensaver settings in KDE are under, System Settings -> Desktop -> screensaver. sorry [b]nothing about screensaver there[/b] But if you wish to use xscreensaver instead you can append the screen you listed on the end of the /etc/X1/xinit/xinitrd.kde file, which will force it to start when any user logs into kde. close as I can get to that directory [root@localhost xinit]# pwd /etc/X11/xinit [root@localhost xinit]# lsa total 36 drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 4096 Jan 9 15:45 ./ drwxr-xr-x. 7 root root 4096 Nov 17 01:08 ../ -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 2030 Aug 27 09:32 Xclients* drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Aug 27 09:32 Xclients.d/ -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 1486 Aug 27 09:32 xinitrc* -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1965 Aug 27 09:32 xinitrc-common drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Dec 25 13:00 xinitrc.d/ drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jan 9 15:44 xinput.d/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 Jan 9 15:45 xinputrc -> /etc/alternatives/xinputrc -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 3547 Aug 27 09:32 Xsession*
