           Summary: 2.6.12 and above create 100% CPU with xorg on iMac
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: powerpc
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kernel-package

After ugrading the kernel on iMac 600Mhz running Breezy Kubuntu to 2.6.12-xxx I
can no longer login with KDM. It takes a long time before the screen gets drawn
and the login boxes appear. When they do, the keyboard is unresponsive. This
happens with all the 2.6.12 builds from Ubuntu that I've tried, and also with
the 2.6.13 official Debian kernel from www.ppckernel.org that I tested. I can
login with ssh from another box and top shows that xorg is eating 99% CPU
resources. Not sure if this is KDE-specific since I haven't tried loading Gnome
on this iMac. Never any problems with 2.6.11 and below.
