What could be causing this?




That is the output to ps aux. It seems to be opening folding way to many times. It should only be 2 instances with 2 FAH Cores. It is doing it with xmms too for some reason. Any ideas as to why?

Dunno, looks OK to me. I have F@H running as a startup service and usually see three or four instances of FAHcore. Similar results for Firefox - usually around six instances of that anytime I'm running it. My guess is that it's forked or spawned sub-processes: if you use 'ps auxf' it'll print out a "tree" view that shows which processes are children of other processes.

Many apps spawn multiple instances of the program to act as threads, you'll find that a lot of programs do this so you don't need to worry about it. On my typical desktop i usually around 100 process.

Well ok then, that ps auxf explains it pretty well. Thanks for the replies. I thought my system had gone nuts on me.

Oh Crap!

I didn't realize anyone was connected when I ran that. I took down the link. That's my bad.
