Description Thomas Bracken 2010-03-12 02:50:22 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

A Process started by kdeinit4 called Nekomuk is using up a considerable
amount of CPU and Disk IO on my Machine.  

I tried to stop it from starting by going to 
configure desktop then clicking on the advanced tab and unchecking 
the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop. 

However when restarting my machine I noticed
that the service was still running.  

I then killed off the service by doing the following 
kill -9 `ps -ef | fgrep nepomuk | awk '{print $2}'` 

To prevent it from starting again I logged in as root and 
did the following 
cd /usr/bin
mv   nepomukserver         not_to_be_used_nepomukserver
mv   nepomuk-rcgen         not_to_be_used_nepomuk-rcgen
mv   nepomukservicestub    not_to_be_used_nepomukservicestub

which seems to work.

My question is. where is the configuration file for the kdeinit4
which controls what services get started by it?
(Its not in my autostart directory under .kde in my home directory!)
Or is it a matter of unregistering the service with kdeinit4?

(ie. how do I "properly" disable the nepomukserver from running?)

Thanks for your help.
