CPU hammered on Dell Inspiron with new install.
On a brand new install of a Debian-based distro (Kubuntu 8.04) the CPU
load is very high. I see the disk light on almost all the time, and
simple maneuvers such as right click drag the system to a halt. In the
KDE system guard I see that the CPU load soars at time like these.
Memory usage seems to be fine. The two disk partions (one for / and
one for /home) are both at 60%. I looked in ksystem log for anything
unusual, but I saw nothing alarming. Previous versions of Ubuntu and
Fedora have run fine on this machine. Where should I begin
Thanks in advance.
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
