problem with gkrellm


I installed the temperature monitor gkrellm in opensuse 11.3 kde and the system stops one or two seconds from time to time when gkrellm is active.

As if it gave a jerk.

This is not happening in my openSUSE 11.2 with gnome.

Thank you.

Do you have a Nvidiacard and monitoring the gpu temperature, then try
to disable gpu monitor.
Response is welcome.

I also have these hogs every one or two seconds but i solved it by putting “nomodeset” as an option at grub boot.

Yes I have nvidia, to disable that option would be disabling the check “Thermal Monitor (GPU-0) and PowerMizer Monitor (GPU 0)” in nvidia-settings configuration?

Try this option yet, could give an example of grub to know where I should add that option if it does not another?

ok, referred to gkrellm, I turned off that option and working properly but I am yet to try the option in the grub nomodeset and I have also created an alert for the graph and I should remove that option.

What significance nomodeset add to the configuration of grub?

It is part of the change video driver procedure.

The problem was related to kwin, I’ve turned off and all perfect.

I will use compiz that I like.

Thank you.
