Since the update to Leap 15, the longer my system runs, the more

Just for comparison - my leap15 KDE desktop - not overly active,
browser, gimp, skanlite - runs 185 processes. 4G of memory of which

Note that the system has 8 gb of RAM and should never swap.

With that workload, yeah, it might very well.

Seems to me you have a lot of akonadi stuff running?

akonadi went nuts over the update. I have only two users with kontact /

akonadi running that is mercurio and entropia, where entropia does imap
mailinglists and mercurio only email. No fancy stuff. Somewhere in the

as it grows endlessly if let alone in idle.

Maybe look into akonadictl restart or something.
Also Kontact is far far from ready for prime time in a production

c) when this happens (also without suspend to disc, it is sufficient to have
the system idle for some time) you have the wlan that ceases to work. Oddly it
says it is active and working but network does not seem to resolve addresses.
I will try now the work around to define a as obligatory dns in nw-

Currently I am not positively impressed with the quality of this release, I am
If asked i would advice to stay with 42.3 currently as long as possible.
