I am running centos 4.2 on a P4 3 GIG with 2 GIG ram.
This machine has been fine for months. my laptop is fine.

X is taking 99 percent of the cpu after some time. All I was doing was 
editing code.

If I killall -9 X it comes back for a while then maxes out again.

Any ideas on something to tweek??? THanks,
