Hello ,

I have installed Slackware 10.2 on a fujitsu siemens e8110 laptop (Core Duo). With & kernels, a few minutes after boot events/0 starts eating 100% cpu (affecting performance and battery life).
Any ideas ?

events is used for a lot of things. Can you send lspci and dmesg output? Can you try leaving the system totally idle (no network traffic, etc) for a while and see if that delay before events begins looping is affected?

Do you have an earlier or later kernel release you can test/confirm as
affected or unaffected? It's not much fun, but if you can find a kernel that properly works, it's always possible to do a bisect...
