kacpid uses 98% of CPU
 
kacpid uses 98% of CPU. I have a dell 1.3ghz cerleron with 512 ram and the most recent nvidia drivers (1.0-6629). my distro is fedora core 2, kernel version is 2.6.8-1.521. For some reason i keep getting redirected to the NVIDIA binary drivers as the source of the problem. does anyone know of any solution or work around?

Searching for kacpid here didn't give any thread other than this one, so probably you should ask again those people who redirected you here :P

You can turn acpi off by adding "acpi=off" to the kernel boot argument line in /boot/grub/grub.conf like:

title Fedora Core (2.6.9-ck3)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-ck3 ro root=/dev/hda3 rhgb acpi=off apm=off quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-ck3.img

Thank you for stating the obvious. Hummm, maybe thatís the reason I started this thread.

Why would I do that, so that I can get redirected back here? (Wow, I better be careful being such a "n00b" and all. I could get caught in an infinite loop.) And why would you even reply to a legit question that you know absolutly nothing about? I hope you think this makes you look cool cause I don't. :P

Thank you. :)

Don't want to bash Linux or Nvidia but isn't open-source great? Nobody is responsible anymore. I've got the same problem. Redhat says it's Nvidia related, Nvidia seems to deny so people are stuck with a broken system and nobody seems to care. And they're surprised Windows is so popular (at least with Windows somebody sometimes listens to you).
So basicly the answer to this problem is: solve it yourself... you don't like it, don't use it... well guess what? that's what a lot of folks seem to be doing...
boy did that feel great

Suicide is the only thing that can cure your ignorance.

I'm posting a reply because I just installed the official NVidia drivers on my PC running Debian Sarge.

And after rebooting kacpid has started harassing me too!

And this solidly 3 years after the last post. Does not NVidia debug their stuff?


If anybody have figured out a fix I'd be very glad to know about it. :)

stkris, it seems unlikely that a 2 year old thread has any relevance to what you're reporting. However, I'd need to see an nvidia-bug-report.log along with details on how to reproduce the problem you're reporting. I'd be especially interested in why you rebooted the system, and what changed since rebooting.

Thanks,
Lonni
