View Full Version : [ubuntu] software center uses 100% CPU on start up

I usually don't use the Ubuntu Software Center, I install programs mostly with Synaptic and sometimes with command lines. I just notice that when SC starts up it uses 100% cpu and this high cpu usage lasts for more than a minute before it drops to normal again.

Wonder if others experience that. I am using Ubuntu 10.10

My cpu use increases during open but does not stay that way . You may want to look at the log file and check for errors associated with opening the software center.
