OpenSUSE :: Digikam & Xorg Heavy Cpu Load?

Oct 24, 2010

i run right now digikam and rebuild my thumbnails. It seems like that this task takes a lot of cpu power and its not digikam itself, rather xorg takes the load. Is this right? I just wonder.

Ubuntu :: Why Is Desktop So Heavy - Ram Load From 275mb To 120mb

Mar 13, 2010

I installed openbox and pcman on my old desktop and was able take the desktop ram load from 275mb to 120mb. (openbox, pcman, kupfer, gnome-panel) I was so pleased with the increased headroom and performance that I wanted to do it on my macbook. Usually my macbook has as desktop ram load of about 350mb... which I find excessive as that is heavier than OS X. That's running gnome, nautilus, compiz, and gnome-do at startup.

I performed a similar procedure today to create the same setup on my laptop and... strangely, my ram usage on the desktop is still close to 300mb! I've brought up system monitor and added up the ram of all the processes it detected myself and it only added up to about 50mb. How is it that my desktop is still so heavy in a minimal environment?? (both machines are Karmic 9.10, by the way. The desktop is hardwired to the internet while my laptop uses Wicd)

Ubuntu :: How To Protect Hdd From Heavy Load Cycle Count When Using Battery

Oct 25, 2010

I just want to tell laptop users how they can protect their hdd from heavy load cycle count (spin up/down of the hdd) when using battery.If you are not sure then just type this command several times in interval of 1-2 minutes, and you will see how much the hdd head spins down, and up: Code: sudo smartctl --all /dev/sda | grep -i load_cycle.Change /dev/sda with appropriate hdd path for your pc.

Ubuntu :: System Stutter Running Heavy Load Through Wine?

Oct 26, 2010

I have recently begun contributing to the Folding@Home distributed computing project. Due to oversights in the application's design and to process the most advantageous work units, I need to run this command line app through wine. The application is very CPU/RAM intensive, but it does not put much load on the hard drive. It is multi-threaded and uses up to 100% of all 6 cores in my machine. I run it with a "nice" level of 19 with hopes that it won't slow down my normal desktop use.

Here is the problem... when running this setup, my system will frequently freeze for a fraction of a second and then resume. With the more complicated work units, this can happen 1-2 times per minute. During the freeze, the mouse will stop moving, videos stop playing, music pauses, etc. The system is completely unresponsive. However, each instance only lasts for a very short time. Since this happens so often, my productivity is negatively impacted (and it's very annoying).

I previously ran the native Linux version of F@H without this problem, but that was also processing much less complicated calculations. I have tried with wine 1.2.1 and 1.3.5 with the same results. The application does not have problems running on Windows. It has been suggested that the current Linux CPU scheduler is to blame, but is there anything I can do to resolve this now or work around it?

Ubuntu :: Network Manager Stops Working Under Heavy Load?

Jan 19, 2011

this is with both network manager and WICD, a problem i've had since i got ubuntu - multiple wipes and reinstalls the wifi is supported out of the box, the problem i've randomly run into since installing is, it will randomly stop detecting networks "no networks detected"

i've noticed over time as this as been happening, that it usually happens whenever there is a high load - multiple videos going on multiple tabs, videos queued up etc. its never happened during regular browsing - theres always a lot going on when it happens, almost like it collapses. the only way to fix this, is to quit the manager - shut off the computer (restarting doesnt work) and then it comes back after

OpenSUSE :: High CPU Load From XOrg And Gconfd-2 With Nvidia?

Jan 9, 2011

I just posted about this in this thread, but as the other thread was started by a KDE user then I thought I'd post here as well. I've had high CPU usage for a few months now - probably since trying the 0.9 branch of Compiz then dropping back to the default openSUSE builds (XOrg and gconfd-2 running a Core i5 at about 30% on every core*). I've now finally found a solution after deciding I wanted to fix it once and for all.

Once again, the Ubuntu forums come to the rescue with this thread (I don't like the distro as a whole, but I do find the forums useful!). I'm using Compiz, but it turns out that Metacity was running as well. A quick "killall -9 metacity" and the gconfd-2 process has vanished and XOrg settled down to its normal 1-2% (which is reasonable when I've got a Conky config refreshing every fraction of a second to repaint a sound visualiser!). Now I just need to find out why Metacity starts when I'm using Compiz...

* according to Conky's per-core graphs, although top only reported 15% overall and the Conky "top 3 procs by CPU" reported a measly 3% for each process, so someone's maths was out somewhere!

General :: Network Stop Working After Heavy Load Of Packets Received

Aug 6, 2011

My LAN has 2 PCs installed, Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP. I run the server on Ubuntu, and client on Windows XP. Because I am doing stress test, so the client will keep sending tons of packets to server.

The strange thing is: After few seconds, the client program crash because of insufficient network buffer, the server is still ok. But after that I cant connect Ubuntu PC anymore until I restart it. And I check the router, the led for the Ubuntu PC is always ON (not blinking), look like it is jam already.

Hardware :: SD Card - Debian Sid - Mmcblk Device Dies Under A Heavy Load

Feb 24, 2010

Is there a way to switch a internal card slot from /dev/mmcblk0** to /dev/sd** ? I'm backing up (via rsync) an ebook directory (1.9gb) to sd card and get massive i/o errors, card turning read-only,etc. This is via a built-in slot on a toshiba laptop. When I use a card reader, the card attaches to /dev/sdd1 and all is fine.

This is a new Sid install. The laptop's card slot worked fine under Ubuntu 9.04 and still works if the amounts of data are small. All I can figure is that the mmcblk device dies under a heavy load...

Ubuntu :: Digikam Package On 64bits Fails To Load?

Jan 8, 2010

I have two computers running Kubuntu 9.10 (using the upgrade paths from 8.04 and so on) one running 32bit and the other running 64 bit and I have the following problem: On the 32bit version installing the repository package for Digikam, everything works just fine. On the 64bit version I have two problems:

First digikam won't start due to the following error:

digikam: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/kde4/
undefined symbol: _ZN7Digikam11ImagePlugin17setActionCategoryERK7QSt ring

I'll have to delete all digikamplugin files from /usr/lib/kde4 and then it works from the command line. It appears that everything is working as it should.Second, starting digikam from Lancelot does nothing.

OpenSUSE :: Digikam Duplications ?

Oct 9, 2010

I wonder if there is an option to select one set of dups to erase. So far i think you can only delete individual images, which might take a long time. Is there any other way to speed deletion a bit? I checked the manual, but it doesn't talk a lot of it. Or is there by any chance another add on?

OpenSUSE :: Install The Latest Version Of Digikam?

Dec 4, 2010

I attempted to install the latest version of Digikam, v1.6, by connecting the Factory repository , then an upgrade via YAST. It automagically included upgrade of certain kde4 packages to v2.5.80.

System ran OK for a while, then I got a Plasma Desktop Shell crash notice and now cannot restart X. I can boot to level 3. I upgraded all the kde components to 2.5.80, but that did not help.

Has anyone successfully done this? Was there a hidden secret to success?

If all else fails, am I correct that
zypper dist-upgrade --from #kde45 repository
will return my system to kde 4.5.4 ?

OpenSUSE :: Dznax 7D Connects Thru Digikam Instead Of File Manager

Jun 21, 2010

I used to plug in my camera into the USB interface and was able to open the picture storage with the KDE file manager - the file manager came up automatically.

Now since I have installed openSUSE 11.2, digikam insists to take over.

How can I configure SUSE 11.2 that it offers me the file manager option again? It would be great (but not necessary) if it offered a selection "Open with ..." when the USB cable is plugged in.

OpenSUSE Install :: Precedence Of Xorg.conf Over Xorg.conf.d?

Jan 26, 2011

I've read the how-tos (thank you oldcpu!) and wikis about how xorg.conf take precedence over the section configuration files in etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, if it exist. I also understand that the xorg.conf can be partial. If it is missing some sections, these will be taken from the corresponding xorg.conf.d section config file. Currently I'm using a xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings in one of my home machines, due to a dual-monitor setup. After generating xorg.conf, the device sections are:

in xorg.conf:


Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"


My question is if the Option "UseCompositeWrapper" "True" will be used or not. In other words, if a section exist in xorg.conf then it's correspondent in xorg.conf.d/ will be completely ignored *or* only the lines in xorg.conf.d/ that already exist in xorg.conf will be ignored?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Move Old Log File "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" To "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old"

Apr 3, 2011

Just upgraded a desktop to openSUSE 11.4 with KDE, and I'm encountering various graphical problems. This machine's been running SUSE versions since 10.0 on similar hardware with few major issues, and I did the 'upgrade' by reinstalling the root partition and keeping the /home partition intact. It has a Radeon 9600 AGP card, which goes under the R300 and RV350AP monikers, and uses the radeon driver (too old for the proprietary ATI driver - deprecated). With the new KMS, it boots up fine under the monitor's correct resolution of 1440x900, though occasionally and randomly then drops to 1024x768 at the login screen. On occasions it will then arrive at the desktop under this lower resolution, other times it corrects itself before getting there.

On starting KDE, the taskbar cycles through various different settings (composited / non-composited) and colours with erroneous shadows. I've tried disabling desktop effects which at least resolves that particular issue. More troublesome is that certain actions result in a garbled display from which it is almost impossible to recover without guessing various keystrokes to cause a logout. Two examples are when running the regular (non-OpenGL) KDE slide show screen saver, when certain transformations corrupt the entire screen, and when opening the Tools -> Options dialog in LibreOffice, though strangely this only causes a problem under one user account and not another.

Running dmesg, I note it is being littered with:


[drm:radeon_vga_detect] *ERROR* VGA-1: probed a monitor but no|invalid EDID yet I have just the one VGA monitor which is VGA-0, and set as such under KDE. Not sure if that's related or a separate issue.I tried adding 'nomodeset' at boot, but it brings me to a console login and after entering 'startx' I get:


xauth: file /home/[user]/.serverauth.2891 does not exist

Fatal server error:

Cannot move old log file "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" to "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old"
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error


Booting in failsafe mode gets me into KDE but with other weirdness and problems using the desktop. I don't know if KMS is ultimately the culprit or there's some other obvious problem, but this is what I'm left with after a 'fresh' installation (despite the /home partition still being kept from openSUSE 11.3). It's not my PC so I need to leave it in a usable state knowing these corruptions aren't going to occur, and I leave the country next week.
