Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 475158
Xorg is using 100% cpu
Last modified: 2008-12-09 13:04:03 EST
Description of problem:
Since the update from F10 to Rawhide, the xserver is using 100% of cpu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When the screensaver goes on, cpu goes to normal state, but the screensaver does present a black screen.
Steps to Reproduce:

I'd like to second this one. Same circumstances (well, was on rawhide before the F10 release).
Xorg acts normally at GDM and then hits 100% on one core after login.
xorg-x11-server-Xorg.x86_64 1.5.3-5.fc10 installed
xorg-x11-drv-i810.x86_64 2.5.0-3.fc11 installed
I'm seeing this one too, in my case with the Nvidia 180.11 driver.
However, this only happens with the Gnome desktop, if I log in with KDE then Xorg cpu usage is normal.
Something to do with gnome-screensaver maybe? I just switched to xscreensaver and the Xorg cpu usage dropped to normal. I tried to switch back to gnome-screensaver, but I don't seem to be able to recreate the problem.
Yes, it has something to do with gnome-screensaver. By killing it, the high cpu-usage is gone. Should i switch bug to gnome-screensaver?
