[opensuse-kde] [warning] BTRFS + KDE desktop instabilities
Hi all,

just a little heads up for (at least) 13.2 users. It appears that using btrfs
as root fs (well, for /var/tmp/ fs) can cause problem with KSharedDataCache
(i.e. plasma cache, etc) in form of crashes.

It is reported upstream as https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=340657
It is yet unclear where the bug lies, as there are similar problems reported
for kernels 3.16.x - 3.17.1 on btrfs mailing list.

If you are using btrfs for root, and can reproduce the issue with 3.17.2 or
newer, or you cannot reproduce after updating kernel to 3.17.2, please follow
up on the bug report. Thanks!


Cheers,
Hrvoje
