I am using manjaro xfce on a pretty old computer (Desktop) it is around 10 years old, after using the manjaro for around 1hour my cpu utilization reaches 100% and computer shutsdown.
I am using 64bit manjaro, RAM in my computer is 6 gb.
When I used htop to find out which task is hogging my cpu I got the command written below that was using around 100% of one core
Without the proper information, nobody is going to be able to help you. For instance…
Is this a desktop computer or a laptop/notebook?
Are you running the 32-bit community version of Manjaro, or the official 64-bit Manjaro?
How much RAM does that machine have?
Have you checked what is hogging the CPU core with htop or top, or perhaps a graphical system load monitor? (I don’t run XFCE, so I don’t know what it is called there, but in KDE Plasma it’s called System Monitor.)
Hi, I’ve been with manjaro for 5 days, approximately, I like the distribution and its ease, I am one of the people who likes to save resources to use them in a certain place to the maximum benefit and I realize that manjaro always needs to use 100% of the CPU of two cores, I don’t know why that happens or is it necessary to always consume 100% of two cores.
Hello again, thank you very much for the welcome :), because if that I always see with the naked eye and kill programs that I know, but some processes I don’t know how to identify them and I better not touch them, I already spent several times to end processes I had problems in the future, I prefer to leave it to software I recommend, and that is what I did; download auto-cpufreq and install it, then restart it and now everything normal I gave it the same use as before but this time the processors are not going crazy going up to 100%.
