After installing reddit, my ubuntu stuck with high cpu usage and system load.

Yes, the script that I used for installing made a new user, "reddit" although I am not sure if the problem is because of that !

Also, these packages are installed,

g++ python-dev python-setuptools python-profiler python-imaging cython git-core subversion libpng12-dev libjpeg62-dev libfreetype6-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev gettext memcached postgresql postgresql-client libpqxx-dev libssl-dev curl daemontools daemontools-run rabbitmq-server haproxy libmemcached5 libmemcached-dev cassandra
