Forking “Child-Process” and other common obstacles of Fedora OS

User‘s over the past few years continue to experience many discrepancies due to a lack of memory or space on their PC – per the demands of Fedora. Unfortunately likewise the same issue arises with any updates, patches, or commands in which appear to infrequently override or corrupt the system and/or operation(s).

While customization is understandably the primary goal in utilizing an OS like Fedora, under Linux as a Kernel, it none the less continues to all too frequently instate obstacles for users, on a variety of levels.

Sometimes attempting to troubleshoot or further understand errors through Gnome just doesn’t yield any desirable results or explanations. As previously mentioned and learned when it comes to utilizing Fedora, sometimes the background applications or processes can make the total Fedora (or Gnome) experience extremely sluggish, and in turn only lead to further unwanted issues and “lag”.

Sometimes a “Disk Partition” error will appear, and even through logging out, logging in through root controls, or re-installation does not solve the problem. Outside of considering a filled DRAM and attempts to swap or re-install Fedora, user‘s still remain unable to fix errors such as this, or speed back up their Fedora experience in general.

Sometimes troubleshooting the error by logging out and attempting the “ps -u ” command works, or at least provides more details as to the true obstacle or cause behind the error. Even through the usage of other (older) Kernels such as Cinnamon, there can be as many as 10 leftover applications or commands running—that is, on the nepomukserver. This is both surprising and disappointing, as such a version and utilization of the OS should be more consistent as well as efficient with it’s RAM or memory usage per the OS itself.

Unfortunately, it would appear as though a “kill all” command is the most practical solution. This is problematic, as it doesn’t truly identify the root or cause of the issue, nor how it behaves. It doesn’t delineate why or how it’s behavior, nor how it will. This, in turn causing a sort of “loopingeffect of problems without a real solution.

Sometimes KDE applications can cause issues like this. While there are indeed various troubleshooting methods to fight such an error via public forums for Fedora, they are not guaranteed to work. Most significantly, these solutions again do not really identify the cause of the problem. Unfortunately it therefore may allow many unwanted applications to continue running in the background or upon startup – and again, in turn return back to the first issue at hand.

Is Fedora truly worth the hassle? Such errors and challenges might easily be made and compared to other OS, such as Windows for example, or a Mac. After all, no OS is perfect.
