    Default Hung process eating all CPU time

    Hi All,

    Since today i experience a strange problem with BT 2 final. After bootup, BT2 becomes terribly sluggisch. Leetmode shows that some process is eating all CPU time.

    Usr is constantly bouncing between 70 and 80 %
    System is bouncing between 20 & 30 %

    Top shows X as the process with the highest CPU utilization which is around 30 %. However, obviously X is really a requirement and i can't imagine that X is the cause of all problems. However, i can't find any other process that is consuming excessive CPU time.

    Any ideas or tips are highly appreciated.

    Well since i haven't got a response yet, maybe this isn't such a stupid question after all.

    Nobody has ever encountered such an issue? Or knows how to find the culprit?

    What are the specs of the machine (CPU and RAM capacity)?

    What DE/WM are you using?

    I've BT installed on a 1.1GHz laptop with 256M of RAM (max capacity is 512...a good indication of older technology). I try to avoid running KDE. I've tested it and its decent, but WM seems far lighter.

    Just some thoughts.

    The machine is a HP NX5000 1,5 Ghz centrino with 512 megs memory. I use the default BT 2 DE, which is KDE.
    The laptop was running like a charm, until that hung process caused the laptop to be sluggish and unusable.

    OK, well, a couple of days after a complete reinstall i experience the same issue. a sort of "ghost" process is using almost all CPU time. CPU utilization is again > 80 % continously with no running programs.

    A little help would be appreciated..
