Description Need Real Name 2000-10-11 11:45:58 EDT
I installed linux RedHat version 7.0 on a dell poweredge 8450 with 4 cpu 
and 4 Gb of memory.  When I boot the system in "init 5", it takes about 5 
minutes to login, and it is very slow to respond.  I ran top it after a 
couple of minutes the application started and showed all the cpu's are 
about 50 or mor utilized mostly by the system.  The top itself was using 
about 45% of the cpus.  When I run the system in "init 3", every thing 
runs normally.

If you boot to run level 3 then start X11 does it stay fast ?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-16 11:13:10 EDT
Yes, even after I start with init 3 and run startx, the system slows down 
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-12-30 13:19:18 EST
Are you using kdm, gdm or xdm?
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-04-03 03:23:17 EDT
Can you try out the latest rawhide XFree86 packages?  XFree86-4.0.3-5
and Mesa-3.4-13.

Do they change the situation for you at all?
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-25 06:02:15 EST
Please reopen bug if problem persists after upgrading to red Hat Linux 7.2
and applying all updates that have been released.
