Xorg log

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.

Comment 4 John Ellson 2008-12-08 08:07:00 EST
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.
Comment 5 Steve 2008-12-08 08:50:08 EST
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?
