Love the distro. But can not figure out why cpu use so high. Amd64 3000+ 1gig ram.

Thanks for any help.

you can select text in a terminal and then paste it here by using the middle mouse button, or if it's a two-button mouse i think you can paste by hitting both buttons at once...

maybe post the output of this command:
ps aux

Open a console and do a top to find out what is taking so much cpu time.

If you have installed KDE 3.4.0 or 3.4.1 it could be de Lisa demon which is doing that, and this is a known problem with kde 3.4. Stop de Lisa demon and everything should be back to normal.
