A process must need to be killed , running at 100%

Some process or process,s are pegging one of my processor cores to 100%
How do I kill that?

Reboot was no help.

You need to move over to the “Processes” tab in your screenshot and see what process is using up cpu. One process to look for is gvfs-smb. Are you running the package “Samba”? It could be something else, but this one process has given me trouble in the pass.

Killed that process everything is now fine.



And it will most likely come back next reboot.

@DE541, please mark yourself as affected on the bug report if at all possible.


Nice find ouroumov

I did sign up to the bug. It only happens to me in VirtualBox.
