Famd has always been more problematic then useful for me.
On random occasions after i plugged a mp3 player or an external usb
drive it would just start using cpu @ 100% and there was no change at
all. I had to kill the process.
Just now i plugged my USB drive and wanted to copy something. CPU usage
was 100% and iostat reported <3MB/s rate non sequential!
I checked the processes and as expected ntfs-3g driver was using most
but famd was there too!
So i nicely killed famd once again... and transfer rate went @ ~22MB/s
Is there a way to live without famd since all it brings are problems for me?
It's required by many things so i can't just remove it.
I'm doing a regular -Syu and this problem was present ... since like forever
Any explanation to this?
Also i'm using xfce, 2GB ram, separate physical system drive
