Description Neil 2005-05-28 00:58:57 UTC
eds-feed takes 80-90% of cpu, and can only be killed.
This occurs specifically when you select "Preferences" from the
gnome=presence-applet _when_ gaim-galago plugin is already enabled. What happens
is you fisrt wait for the pref's window, while you cpu goes through the roof,
and then when it appears, no contacts are listed.

However, if you disable gaim-galago, then click the pref's, everything works as
expected, and then you can enable it, and have you contacts show up in the
applet, until, that is, you select the preferences again, where eds-feed will
take uphuge amounts of cpu.

libgalago, galago-daemon, eds-feed, gaim-feed, libgalago-gtk = all current
DBus = 0.33
Evolution = 2.2.2
eds = 1.2.2-3
gaim = 1.3.0-1
dist = FC4T3 (fully updated)

p.s. sorry for the lack of keyboard skills...or spelling skills...its been a
long night :)
Comment 2 Christian Hammond 2005-05-28 01:02:33 UTC
Is this a 32-bit or 64-bit CPU?
Comment 3 Neil 2005-05-28 05:35:55 UTC
32 bit AMD
Comment 4 Christian Hammond 2005-07-17 10:41:04 UTC
Try again with libgalago SVN and galago-daemon SVN. It should related to another
issue that has just been fixed.
Comment 5 Christian Hammond 2005-07-17 10:41:22 UTC
Oh, and you'll need D-BUS 0.34 or higher.
Comment 6 David Breakey 2005-10-28 15:31:20 UTC
This is still happening. Config as follows:

Mandriva Linux 2006.1 (Cooker), AMD64 2800+, 1GB RAM

* Evolution 2.4.1-2mdk
* DBus 0.50-1mdk
* Gaim 1.5.0-5mdk
* Gaim-Galago 0.3.2-1mdk
* Galago-daemon-0.3.4-2mdk
* lib64galago1-0.3.3-2mdk (64-bit devel and 32-bit packages also)
* lib64galago-gtk0-0.3.4-2 (64-bit devel and 32-bit packages also)
* Hal 0.5.4-1mdk
* gnome-presence-applet 0.3.1-2mdk
* eds-feed 0.3.2-1mdk

With GAIM galago plugin disabled, no problems, but as soon as it is activated
and I try to pull up preferences on the presence applet, CPU usage is maxed and
several eds-feed processes are spawned (typically two or three, but it seems to
spawn more over time; at one point, I had four total, with one sleeping and the
other three taking approx 33% each).

All packages were built from source, using the Mandriva SRPM repository, with
all known dependencies satisfied, on a 64-bit system.

I can probably provide more info if desired.
