Thread: OpenSuse 13.1 gnome extremely high CPU usage

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse 13.1 gnome extremely high CPU usage

    My CPU fan is constantly spinning at max with this OS. In system monitor I have nautilus constantly taking between 20-50% CPU and bjiben-shell-search-provider taking between 20-50% CPU as well.
    This is not normal! The OS remains unusable as long as this isn't fixed.

    Hi
    So, my install doesn't have this issue.... which for me is normal...
    (not very helpful is it?)

    OK, can you provide a bit more detail on you hardware? CPU, GPU, RAM
    etc?

    This is a stock 13.1 install and updated, no changing themes etc?

    If you don't use the system monitor, open a terminal and use top, still
    see this effect?

    Hi
    And your running the standard kernel as well? There have been reports
    of issues with 3.12rc4.

    Are you running Nautilus as the 'Desktop' to get the icons showing etc?

    I don't know if my kernel is standard.
    kernel packages are version
    3.11.6-4.1

    "Icons on desktop" is off in gnome-tweak-tool

    Hi
    There are a few updates in the GNOME stack today, can you update and
    see if the issue persists?
