I got Toshiba Portege 3505 laptop, which works really well with VLinux combined with Fluxbox.
Recently I removed 'bootsplash', 'xdm' and 'kdm-small' packages to get rid of those useless GUI.
Now when my Linux starts it informs me that I it got no 'kdm, xdm or gdm' packages to start from, which is fine. I login normally, type 'startx' and my fluxbox shows up. Everything would be fine, but I got 'conky' monitor running and I noticed that just after starting X my CPU usage reaches 30%. I checked the 'ps aux' and 'top' - there were absolutely no processes using so much of my CPU power.
I started to kill processes to look for a change, and here is the most important part of my post:
- when I kill process '/usr/bin/startx' owned by 'root' my CPU usage drops to 0 - 3% as normal.
I'd like to know what may cause it - I am able to write a script to kill it just after X start, but I am curious why it behaves like that.
Thanks in advance for all replies.
