    High CPU-Stress after a couple of minutes
    [​IMG]
    I'm running Kali Linux under VM-Ware Workstation 9.0. with 2 Cores(each 3.5GHz) and 2GB Memory. When I start the VM all seems to be great, but after some minutes the VM became a high cpu usage, approximately 80% per Core. But there's no process which uses as much cpu time.​
    Does anyone know this problem ?​

    apt-get install htop
    press F3 and sort by cpu
    the process that is using a high percentage of the cpu should be on top
    kill it using F9 then press 9 signterm than press enter

    xorg seems to be the reason. the process seems to use very much cpu time after a half hour.
    But maybe VMWare is the reason.

    If i change with STR+ALT+F6 to a non - X session the cpu usage was normal again.

    Open task manager (for windows) and set affinity/ priority of program usage. If it is still slow, upgrade processors.
