My system has been running fine for quite some time and then more recently it has become sluggish. Nautilus hangs very regularly, and often required a
to get things running again.Code:pkill nautilus
The issue didn't appear to be getting any better so I took a look at the processes running and realized that gvfsd-metadata is hogging 100% cpu cycles and nearly 60% of memory.
I'm on a revo r3600 ION single cpu machine with 1gb RAM. Ubuntu 32bit Karmic.
I've done some searches and seen a couple of others who appear to be suffering too ( http://www.mail-archive.com/desktop-...msg386162.html ).
with this only recently becoming an issue I'm sure either an update caused the issue or there is a conflict that remains unresolved.
Please help me fix this as it is really becoming quite a bothersome problem having to issue
at regular intervals just to carry out normal everyday tasks.Code:pkill gvfsd-metadata
If no-one can come up with anything then I shall reformat to see if that helps and if not I'll be throwing the machine out of the window.
