openSuSE-11.1 100% CPU Usage

Hi folks.

I'm running openSuSE-11.1 under VMware Fusion on Mac OS X 10.5.6.

After the install and things having settled, the X process seems to
steadily run at 100% CPU utilization, occasionally dipping to 98% but
then goes back up to 100% (and in some cases, 103%).

This is causing my laptop's fan to work double time, as well as
creating much more heat.

I've looked at and tried everything under the sun to get CPU down to
idle, but no joy. I've also looked at:

'CPU usage 11.1 KDE 4.1 - openSUSE Forums' (http://tinyurl.com/9apoaz)

but still no luck either.

I've been running openSuSE on my virtual machine since version 10, with
no problems. openSuSE-11.0 also had no problems.

It was only after moving to 11.1 that I'm now seeing this.

Any clues on how to fix this? I see it's come up a number of times
since 11.1 started shipping.

I'm still using the default desktop that gets installed with KDE-4.1.3.
Would disabling that help?

The MacBook comes with an Intel GMA 950 with 64MB of shared memory.

I asked that to narrow the search for your problem.
Make sure you have 3d acceleration enabled in Yast > Hardware >
Graphics.
Also you can try disabling the desktop effects in control panel (or
personal settings, whatever the name is now).
And failing all that, try installing KDE 3.5. Then starting the session
in 3.5 might tell you whether it's a kde4 problem with your graphics
driver.

CPU usage 11.1 KDE 4.1
Hey all. Have a question/issue regarding CPU usage under the titled install. I get a constant 7-8 % usage at idle. Running TOP shows X server as the culprit (I have uninstalled Beagle and AppArmour) Usage is shown via gkrellm process stack. Is this normal? I suspect it is the new K desktop. Which is fine by me.

Upgrade 11.1 to 11.3: All CPUs and disk at 100% usage
KDE desktop I upgraded an 11.1 system to 11.3. The initial upgrade phase went okay. I then started an Online Update to bring the upgrade to the current level available. The updates finished around 3:00am (MST, -0700). Both CPUs and the disks are running at 100% ever since. (it is now 11:35 am MST.) Actually, the CPUs do not run at 100% all the time, only 90% of the time. During one of those few non-100% breaks I started the graphical system monitor and <top>. Neither top nor the monitor's Process List show any process with a usage greater than 5%. Yet the graphical s...
