Description of problem:
if I logon through gnome as a non-root user and run top I see that rhn-applet-
gui is taking over 95% of my CPU...
(NOTE: this non-root user is a member of every group on my system )
if I logon through gnome as root and run top I don't have this issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.logon as a non-root user through the GNOME console
3.look at CPU usage
Actual Results: CPU is running at over 95% utilization
Expected Results: CPU should be running at under 5%
Of course I can't reproduce this, you need to provide more informations.
Try to launch rhn-applet-gui from a shell and see is there is any error message.
If you know how to use gdb launch it on python and run with the
/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui argument, then abort it to get a stack trace.
if I run rhn-applet-gui from the shell it runs fine ( no errors and CPU usuage
is at ~3% )and I can see the icon come up on my GNOME pannel...
Then I have really no idea, that means the applet itself is fine
it's the way it is started which gives troubles. Why and how, there
is nothing allowing me to reproduce or debug the problem, I can't
reproduce this, and apparently you're the only one having the
problem. Try to see if there are error messages logged
in your X session logs, maybe there is something wrong in the setup
not allowing the applet to connect to the Xsession or to the panel...
This is more than one year old and I didn't got any error report
about this since, I think this can safely be closed.
