A couple of days ago I installed slackware 12.1 with gslacky 2.22.3. I started slackware and everything was going REALLY slow... It tooked me about 10 minutes to load slackware!?! After I logged in and typed top I sa CPU 80-100% and on the top - kjournald which was using 80-95% of cpu. Everything else was using cpu/mem at about 0-15%.
So I typed lsmod and saw an endless list of modules I just DON'T need... Because this has happened before to me I thought "Let's download the latest kernel and reconfigure it".
That's exactly what I did - a brand new kernel 2.6.26 (from kernel.org) with everything I need for my pc and nothing else ( as usual ). Rebooted and things speeded - it tooked me about 3 minutes and 40 sec to load which is normal ( for my pc). I thought "Yey ... fixed.." - stupid me.
Started X11 and right after that the cpu whent 80-100% again..
Again I ran a Terminal and typed top and again kjournald was on the top of the list with 80-95% usage of the cpu...
I have a few questions:
1) Why do I need kjournald ?
2) Do I really need it ?
3) Why would I need it ?
4) Why does this program using so much resources ?
I know that `kjournald` is used for journaling ext3 partitions but.. Is there any replacement of this and the most important question - why is it taking so much resources ?! Everything in the kernel is configured as it should be - chipset,processor type,network,video,audio,usb, file systems - everything is configured exactly for my machine.
This is a lspci if somebody needs it:
