View Full Version : [ubuntu] Synaptic Package Manager Using 100% CPU

May 10th, 2010, 07:51 PM
I'm using a fresh install of 10.04 on a 2Ghz Core2Duo with 2Gb RAM.

When I type anything into the search box in the GTK Synaptic Package manager it freezes up and uses 100% CPU time for about 30 seconds. It also does this when I select a package for installation. Everything works it's just annoying to have to wait 30 seconds every time I try to find or install something.

I was previously using Ubuntu 9.10 and Synaptic was always very responsive.
