Why a python process is running when I don't use python? It is launched automatically and it's parent process is kdeinit4. How to make it not to starting automatically, or maybe I need it? It uses a lot of memory.

Even if you aren't running a python program, the desktop environment or a service that is running may be using python. If it's running when you log in to your system, it probably needs to. If you think it's using too much memory, please file a bug at redhat bugzilla.

Please note that every time a python program is run, the python interpreter is run, which will show up as the process in a process manager.
