View Full Version : F9: KDE Spamming ~/.xsession-errors

Hello:

Any other KDE DE users out there notice this: ~/.xsession-errors is constantly being written to by numerous processes, to a point where it's just absurd. The file can grow to well over 1 MB in a matter of minutes, tens of MB within an hour or two. Any really important messages are completely buried in the extremely verbose, yet apparently pointless, stream of text being dumped into the file. I've looked for some setting to set/limit this verbosity, but can't find anything (kdmrc in particular has nothing). It even aggravates resource usage because any app using CPU power inevitably writes huge quantities of data to the file, causing increased resource consumption, causing... ad infinitum.

GDM limits ~/.xsession-errors to 2500 lines. Takes about an hour to cap out, then nothing gets logged. There's got to be some sane, happy median between these two extremes.

Anyone else seen/seeing this, or found/know of a way to stifle the output to a dull roar?

Thanx and Regards,
V

Can you show us example of your that looks excessive? Or attach it?

Hello marcrblevins:

Thanks for responding.

Sure, excerpt attached, last 10,000 lines only as after ~6 hours uptime it's:
[vince@localhost Mon Jul 28 03:35:58 ~]$ llha .xsession-errors
-rw------- 1 vince vince 3.4M 2008-07-28 03:36 .xsession-errors
[vince@localhost Mon Jul 28 03:36:06 ~]$Ordinarily, I'm just not up to sifting through that kind of verbosity....

EDIT: For the record: Updating to any KDE4 > 4.0.98 fixes the issue for me.
