If I wrote a Java program that was chewing up this much CPU, I would be looking for something in a tight loop or some intensive math computation. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/yumbackend-715844/ A girl is blind, deaf, dumb and uneducated too.

That's a normal message that comes out on a desktop (or GUI) system which has the applet enabled for notifying you of pending updates. i'm going to replace centos 6 with 7... I have no desire for automatic updates and would like to switch this feature off. Added: Okay - it's been a day and since Friday evening's updates, I've seen no further instances of the CPU pegging the meter like it was.

Now back at "while [ 1 ]; do killall yumBackend.py; sleep 5s; done" to keep machine usable. That commit makes sense to drag along too. Which CPU do you have? I speak and write no other language (except computer languages) so you are doing well.

Is anyone seeing this bug that isn't using KDE?
