Suse 11.2 npviewer taking cpu

Suse 11.2 npviewer taking cpu

i have noticed when running firefox and opera, npviewer takes over the cpu, this is when watching moving images. the percentage of cpu times just rises till the application freezes.

Any help would ne appreciated

Sorry 11.1 and running 64 bit. I think I had an issue with this months ago.

Hi,

npviewer.bin is the Firefox Adobe Flash Player plugin. What version of flashplayer is installed, the newest?
If a update don’t help just kill the prozess:
[for name in $(ps ux | awk ‘/npviewer.bin/ && !/awk/ {print $2}’); do kill “$name”; done]

I can kill the npviewer, using a window, top and kill.

i have version
10.1.53.64-17.2 of the Adobe flash player, found out using YAST

Thanks

Adobe Flash Player 10.1.53 is current.
Sorry, i don’t habe a better answer as try OS 11.2 or 11.3
With your graphiccards change to 11.2 so you don’t run in trouble
with drivers.

Or a simpler kill command would be:

killall -9 npviewer.bin

really, can i just update to 11.2 or 3.

It took me ages to get the canon printer working etc.

a lot of work just for a flash player?

:slight_smile: my play instinct…

next time i will use the easy version.

You are right, to much work for a flash player. OS 11.1 is from December 18, 2008.
Security updates you can get 2 years i believe. This is a better reason to update.

yes you are right. Strange it was working fine must have been an update.

It must be a common problem. Seems to have be carried over to 11.2 and 11.3, Adobe are working on the flasher player according to their site.

Thanks for reply
