I am back to Mint 14 Mate after a time with Sabayon, good system but I can't see to keep away from Mint! I have done all the upadtes etc. However I am getting very high cpu usage that grinds the system to a halt. I think it's got to do with Nvidia drivers, the machine is dual boot and Win 7 is smooth and stable but I much prefer Linux.
Hopefully this info from terminal will help - when I issued 'top' command in terminal xorg was running at 74.2% cpu the rest of the processes were as should be.
I would greatly appreciate any help with this, the only solution I have is to log out then back in which corrects the problem but is a pain when working as I use the system for my business.
