Description Philip Ashmore 2007-12-10 03:24:42 EST
Description of problem:
artsd uses 60% CPU on KDE startup

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
9/10 times

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KDE
2. See ksysguard panel applet display that the CPU is really busy
3. Open ksysguard to find the culprit
Actual results:
artsd is using a lot of CPU resources

Expected results:
artsd should use at most 5% of resources when idle

Additional info:
KDE is configured not to play a sound on KDE startup.
artsd gets restarted (I don't know how) periodically. Sometimes it resumes
chewing up CPU resources, sometimes not.

I'd venture this only occurs with pulseaudio enabled.

> artsd gets restarted (I don't know how) periodically
True, when/if the system needs audio events, it'll automatically (re)start.

You could consider disabling pulseaudio support in kde, via:
yum remove kde-settings-pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-02-19 10:36:52 EST
Other that disabling pulseaudio, there's not much else to do. (marking CantFix).
