Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2162
Xsun uses ~95% of the CPU
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
Xsun (18.104.22.168-1.1 and 22.214.171.124-25) uses all available CPU
power when idle. As soon as the screen blanks due to
inactivity Xsun jumps to using around 95% of the CPU. When
the mouse is moved, thus powering the screen back up, the
CPU utilization drops to normal. Oddly enough, if the
screen is reactivated by pressing a key on the keyboard the
CPU utilization stays high. This behavior can be seen under
any 2.2 kernel.
what cpu architecture do you have / sparc system do you use?

Same problem for me on an LX(sun4m), with cgsix and RH 5.2.
Can you verify if the recent egcs*1.1.2-13 and kernel*2.2.5-21 errata
fix this problem?Can you verify if the recent egcs*1.1.2-13 and kernel*2.2.5-21 errata
fix this problem?
I have recompiled kernel 2.3.2 with egcs-1.0.2. This is on RedHat
It seems like the bug has dissapeared.
This problem appears to be fixed by upgrading your sparc kernel to
the errata kernel*2.2.5-21.sparc*.rpms. Or use egcs*1.1.2-13 (or
equivalently egcs*1.0.2) to compile your kernel.
Thanks for verifying.
