    Auto Update for a week

    I logged on my ibm600e with SUSE 11.1 + on Thanksgiving and auto update started and is still running today 12/02/2009. Pentium cpu is at 77 to 97% 93% memory usage plus some swap usage. Ethernet and wireless are activeily working

    also separately the CD ROM is not detecting/detected except by the hardware report I sent in. My external Zip100 Is visible. as is the plug in floppy drive

    My linux is very limited

    Did you set the repositories to 11.2?? I cant think of anything else that would cause a major download like that..

    Please give some more detail.

    You might want to check what processes are running.

    1) open a console and type top this will show which processes are using the CPU and memory.

    2) use ps -A to few current processes and get their PID number

    3) use kill PID to kill the process (PID from above or from 1)
