So any luck with this yet? I am running Kubuntu 11.10 x86_64 kernel 3.0.0-16-generic i7 @ 3.8GHz 24GB Ram NVIDIA gtx 260 running the 290.10 Drivers
This actually didn't start happening until I updated the Kernel However it is the same effect, /usr/bin/X is running way over 575M<-Virt 450M<-Res ~80% CPU almost constantly. My machine is lagging hardcore. I used to be able to run multiple vm's hundreds of tabs on chrome etc.. and now I can barely use my system.
I've got the performance settings in xorg.conf
| |--> Device "Device0" | | |--> Driver "nvidia" | | |--> VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" | | |--> BoardName "GeForce GTX 260" | | |--> Option "UseEvents" "On" | | |--> Option "Coolbits" "1" | | |--> Option "RenderAccel" "O"
I haven't changed anything as far as programs I am running, and since this bug was introduced in the last big update I was wondering if there was a known issue that i could track, or if anyone has any suggestions on how to track down the offender that is causing Xorg to run like this?
