    upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 100% cpu Xorg process

    my computer is unusable.. every time i click or open or move a window it freezes for several seconds. system monitor shows at this time the process Xorg is using 100% cpu.


    it never drops down below 40%, even at idle.

    my system is amd 64 4000+ 3gb ram and ati 3650 HD video.

    i have kubuntu 64 10.10 with all the updates and default ati drivers.

    How does 10.10 work when booted from a live CD?

    Instead of running System Monitor, try the top command from terminal. (System Monitor itself uses up a lot of resources for graphs and all that).

    And try to reconfigure your graphics by

    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    You mentioned default ATI drivers, I assume you mean the open source drivers. If thats the case, installing the proprietary drivers might help. System > Administration > Additional Drivers.

    Good Luck!

    this does not use the ati drivers, so it runs normally.
