    Unhappy 11.4 Becomes Unresponsive Just After Login

    Hi,

    The problem is sometimes my PC becomes unresponsive right after I login.

    >> The HDD led keeps glowing

    >> Difficulty in moving the mouse pointer

    The I do CTRL+ALT+F<fn1-6> & finally CTRL+ALT+DEL to reboot ........the reboot process takes a long time too.

    After I reboot everything becomes normal again.

    This doesn't happen on every login.

    How to troubleshoot this issue ?

    I don't know which log to include here.

    Please reply.

    Hi
    It could be a startup application holding things up. If you do the ctrl+alt+F1 and login as your user, then run top to see what's running etc. If it's the gnome-shell, then login as root user, and run;
    Code:
    su -
    init 3
    init 5 && exit
    Then press ctrl+alt+F7 (or F8) and login as your user.

    Its running fine at the moment I will follow the steps you have mentioned when the problem occurs again.

    I have added some apps to startup which I use daily ......they include Skype, Thunderbird, Pidgin, & Opera Clock Widget.

    I can't because (a) I am already logged in to Gnome by now ......I only realize this problem after I login to Gnome 2.x (Didn't like 3 ) . And once it happens I can't logout.

    @malcolmlewis

    It happened again.

    I pressed CTRL+ALT+F1 & then did top but I didn't see any application taking 100% cpu. As you know I cant copy/paste from there. What is the procedure to find out which app is causing the issue ?

    Yes, you can.
    You need to start service rcgpm to copypaste with the mouse in text mode.

    Or, you tell top to run for just 3 cycles and pipe the result to a file.

    top -b -n 3 > top.txt

    > What is the procedure to find out which app is causing the issue ?


    If you do not see a busy app, it is typically a busy disk. Something is
    reading or writing a lot. It is not easy to see in top, except perhaps the
    percent of "wa", or "wait"if I'm not mistaken.

    I will do just that the next time I face the problem.

    But where is the file top.txt going to be saved ? In my home folder ?

    Where ever you happen to be. It goes to the current folder unless you put a full path in the name.
