Re: [gamin] greedy gam_server

Hi Daniel,

       I would be glad to let you login to my machine when
this problem happens.   This is a common problem on my
machine that seems to happen sometimes shortly after
a yum update.  The machine is completely unusable for
30-45 minutes.  I move the mouse and it takes 30 seconds
for the mouse pointer to move during this time it is consuming
swap space like crazy (like 2GB worth).  Once it settles down
it still is consuming swap but a slower rate until I run out and
have to reboot.  As I said you could login my machine after
this happens.   What can we do to help you solve this problem?
Fedora 6.

All the best,
