    10.4 upgrade, Xorg, cpu, fans gone nuts

    Hi all,

    I upgraded my Asus Eeepc 900a to 10.4 yesterday. Since then, Xorg has averaged between 30-40% CPU, and my fans have gone nuts running high/low/high/low, ad nausium.

    Any ideas what might be going on? Another clue perhaps: on reboot or shutdown, I get a "program not responding" message with "unknown" as the hung program. I have not been able to determine what this program is or if it is related to the hyperactive Xorg.

    Cheers,

    S

    Type "atq" command on terminal and paste there results. I had similiar problem after upgrading to 10.04rc and have solved it, but first we need to know if that's the problem.

    OK, so this is not the case I had, because there were some planned jobs on my system that caused 100% CPU usage. Date of those planned jobs was from November 2009, and they showed just after the upgrade to 10.04rc and I thought it may be the same situation with your high CPU usag, but if atq shows nothing then it is not the same situation.

    I have no other ideas what it can be, so I hope someone else will help you.

    thanks anyway. I appreciate your effort. I downloaded and am running blackbox as my wm which has solved the problem temporarily, so must be a config problem with gnome somewhere...

    Did you clean install or upgrade? If you upgraded, then you should try booting from a LiveCD to see how it acts.

    Same problem. Funny thing is that i made a thread 4 weeks ago while in alfa. It did installed some new fglrx drive (automatically) and after short usage of the system the Xorg process started to "eat" more than 60% off of my CPU. Now i downloaded the release ISO burned it on a cd and installed it from the live version. Everytime my mouse go through hyperlink in either firefox OR chrome i get 1 sec lag...I read that as a caution not to download BETA 2 because i might experience this very problem but it was also saying that...it will be fixed in the final release...yet after 10 minutes of installing the software that I ALWAYS INSTALL since 8.10 it began to literally rape my CPU locking me out unable to do anything >.< I must say that this is not fun. There is no need to tell that...compiz is disabled by default (<3 legacy OS driver) and if i enable it my pc will lag like hell. This is the most annoying ATi driver bug EVER >.< Im 2 seconds away to go and buy some nVidia video card god **** it...stupid amd...stupid ATi...i hope you bancrupt...besides that the new ubuntu is real epic deal

    I hear that installing backports is helping some with this problem. Something about a fix being made but not included in the final ISO because it was created after the freeze.

    I believe it has been included in an update somewhere and read somewhere that backports may be the source of the update.
    This may be a tad more helpful. If you click the thingy that takes you to his post there are one or two other things to try which have been said to work.
