So, I left my computer for the weekend, (on as usual) and when I got back just now, it was unusably sluggish. First, I did a ps -A and saw a suspicious-looking "gnp" running twice and eating up lots of processor time. So I killed that, and saw no visible effects - meaning, no program running died or showed any errors, and the computer really did not speed up much. Next, I quit everything I was running and got out of X.

Now, I was running a lot of programs - a few mozilla windows, a few terminals with vi open, two gaim accounts, sylpheed, and openoffice were all open. Basically, however, the computer was slightly sluggish when I left but sliggishly unusable when I got back. Is this most likely a bug in OpenOffice or Mozilla that grew to eat lots of resources over the course of an idle 28 hours? Or is it something else? Is bad slow down normal after running X, Gnome and Nautilus for 30 days straight?

Also, what is gnp? And anyone know what oafd is? (Its a process that I have running and I do not know what it is.)

Thanks.

Jon Bober.
