I am having some problems with deleting articles in Akregator.
If I had opened some specific type of articles, from then on, deleting
articles takes a long time. For example, it takes 1-2 seconds for
deleting 10 articles. 3-4 seconds for 40 articles etc. This started last
year or so, but I was unaware as to what was triggering it.
Now I can reproduce the problem. If I open any article from Slashdot
feed or an article that has an embedded video (although it doesn't play
in Akregator anyway), then all subsequent article deletions take a long
time and at times cause a graphics reset. Even closing Akregator takes a
long time and finally crashes.
If I don't open any such offending articles in a session, then
everything is OK.
I'm running nVidia proprietary driver and I don't have any other
problems in general. Only with Akregator and deleting articles.
Any ideas on what could be the culprit?
there is no more plasma!
I don't recall the names/numbers of the update, but there were 62 packages. Since there had also been a new 4.17 kernel in the update just minutes previously and I hadn't rebooted, I did this update, too, and powered off for the night. This morning, using both the new 4.17 kernel and the last of the 4.16 kernels, trying both plasma on xorg and on wayland, I log in and there us just a black display with a mouse pointer.
I had to resort to gnome in order to be able to have a desktop at all.
That happened? Is there some undocumented dependency that did not get pulled into the update that I need to install? I tried doing an update just moments ago, but it says the system is up-to-date.
As everyone knows, the KDE Plasma desktop is a release-blocking
artifact for Fedora releases. KDE is important to us, and we don't want
to go out the door with it broken.
But, there's a problem that's coming up more and more. One of the
release criteria is that all of the default applications need to have
their basic functionality tested.* This is particularly a problem with
KDE, because the SIG has decided to ship so many applications
(apparently three web browswers, now).
I'd like to propose that we either:
1) significantly reduce the number of default apps to a more managable
2) remove this particular blocking test from KDE in particular.
In either case, it would really be helpful to have more release-time
validation of shipped applications from the KDE sig.

I have installed the browser integration extensions for both firefox and chrome, but whenever I open either program, I get a message to make sure the package is installed. I checked updates-testing and koji, but there is no mention of plasma-5.12.90 or kf5-18.04. I tried finding a copr repo, but turn up nothing. Since the demise of kde-redhat, I seem to be out of the loop for getting the testing updates, even though I have updates-testing enabled.
In another system I get this:
# dnf upgrade
Problem 1: cannot install the best update candidate for package kajongg-16.12.3-2.fc27.noarch
- nothing provides python3-twisted >= 16.6.0 needed by kajongg-17.12.2-2.fc28.noarch
Skipping packages with broken dependencies:
kajongg noarch 17.12.2-2.fc28 fedora 4.7 M
I got out of memory twice today on a F27 machine with 32 Gb RAM last
updated on Friday:
juin 07 16:29:03 gamma kernel: Killed process 23401 (kded5)
total-vm:31760720kB, anon-rss:23828968kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
juin 07 16:29:03 gamma kernel: Out of memory: Kill process 23401
(kded5) score 707 or sacrifice child
The machine runs Plasma.
Any idea where it could come from?
