View Full Version : [all variants] CPU usage goes wild, from fuser?

Tonight my 11.10 which has worked wonderfully for 2 weeks has suddenly gone crazy. The CPU meter goes up and down even with no applications running.

If I run anything then the CPU rushes from 100% to 50% up and down, sometimes freezing the screen.

The task manager if it can keep up sometimes shows about 40 incidents of something called fuser running.

Any help or suggestions? This is making my computer almost unusable.

Seems to be connected to PHP. No solution yet.

I had a similar problem that disappeared installing the proprietary video drivers.

Thank you, I did see that thread, but far too confusing for a beginner such as myself.

Where did you find the drivers?
