How about removing PulseAudio?

Just watch not to say "yes" on proposal that has long list of files to
remove. You need KDE base and few more applications :-)

Thanks Rajko,

That's better.....not great.....but better. Question: Why does SuSE put in
packages like PulseAudio when there are going to be conflicts?

No idea. Few guesses, though.

Sometimes application works fine even with low version number, sometimes it is
flop. PulseAudio seems to conflict with default kernel settings of openSUSE
that give have acceptable performances on newer hardware, and worse than
before with older.

You may put nohz=off as boot parameter to see if it does any good.
If there is difference then include it in /boot/grub/menu.lst .

You can also try to install rt kernel instead of default or pae and see is
there any change.

There is also problem with IO operations that can keep CPU busy waiting for
input, but that is kernel problem independent from openSUSE.

All that makes trouble to older hardware, while newer suffer lesser.

For instance while writing this, I typed more then a whole word, and nothing
appeared on the screen, then suddely all was there. Computer was busy while
KMail was downloading emails. CPU wasn't overloaded, so it must be IO
blocking output to the screen.

I guess I'll install rt kernel and see what happens.
