not that bad here, but probably similar situation with a 9 year old P4
Laptop with 2GB of RAM.
The workaround was easy in terminal: sudo chmod -x

after I uninstalled strigi.

Now everything boots fast, emails are read fast, everything is much
smoother, no unresponsive desktop, ...

Hi All,

with regret, I can say I have tried everything for my poor system, but
it cannot afford such a heavy workload.

My System (very old with some updates): Pentium IV 2.8 Ghz / Ram: 1 GB /
Video Card: ATI 512 MB

History: I was coming from Natty 11.04 and Kmail-1. Everything was going
smooth. Not so fast, obviously. but I could also keep enabled the
desktop effects without problems. Swap (3 GB in total), when necessary,
increased up to 4/5% on total (I used to keep open Kmail, Amarok, rekonq
or FF, Lokalize at the same time). RAM on startup at abt 45/50%

My mail: 4 accounts (POP3) with a total of abt 40,000 mails (I deleted
the unneeded ones)

My system after the update started the migration to the new Kmail
system: it failed, but I succeeded to run it manually.
It started the migration and the SYNCHRONIZATION. From this moment on,
my system has been poorly overloaded, with no way to stop this hell (for
me) "machine" which is Akonadi and its agents: (my poor and old) CPU the
most of time at 100% of load, not for few hours but for DAYS, swap
increased up to 50% (!); RAM always at 80/90%; activities and actions
extremely slowed down.

Ok, I've been wrong in something. So I deleted my accounts, setup them
again, trying to "clean" the system (luckily, mail servers I use don't
delete mail by default).
Now I tried to setup Gmail as Imap: worst than ever. Kmail couldn't
afford folders/labels of this size (thousands of mails). I deleted the
Imap account and re-setup the POP3 one. No way to solve the huge
workload. And what about opening a mail folder? No way to do that,
unless after few hours.

Akonadi and mysql daemon seemed to be allied against my system.
