I have a problem with my Linux installation.
It seems that the KDE code that deals with directory windows is extremely slow (on both Dolphin and Konqueror). This happens both when I click on a directory icon and when I want to open/save a file from many KDE applications. The time the window takes to open can be one minute or more. The same happens when I right click on an icon.
Looking at the CPU usage, this is very low (less than 10%).
Am I the only one with this problem, or is it well known and maybe already fixed?
Consider that I cannot update to a more recent version of OpenSuse.
Linux version: OpenSuse 11.4
System: DELL Precision T3500 - Intel Xeon
Home directory mounted on a remote drive. <-- could this be the reason?
