Description Nadeem 1999-08-08 05:42:36 UTC
gnorpm appears to use an inordinate amount of resources
(specifically % cpu) on 3 different RedHat 6.0 systems. The
specific resource increase occurs when you try to do a
webfind. Gnorpm, then, when *idle* (e.g. the webfind window
is open,b ut the program is minizmied), uses up 30-40% cpu.
These aren't 386's either :], I have had the same problem on
a Pentium Pro 200, Celeron 333, and Pentium II 233. I tried
upgrading to GnoRPM 0.9, but the problem persists.

When webfind is started, it does some background operations which
eat lots of CPU, but only for a few seconds. Then, on my system,
no further CPU usage is seen.
