On Core2Duo host p5bse I just did an otherwise successful dup to 20210604 on one
of my rare installations that includes SDDM. Response to mouse and keyboard at
sddm greeter is minimal, very highly delayed, if any response at all. Watching top
in remote login shows SDDM using CPU varying between 25% and 89% or more. I did
manage to login, but it takes considerable time to do. Switching themes didn't
help. Am I alone in this?
Attachment is grep of sddm from journalctl -b.
Trying to switch back and forth between autologin or not, as when trying to
disable autologin to enable a troubleshooting a broken X, is proving very
difficult. It seems once autologin has been enabled, SDDM remembers even after
editing /etc/sddm.conf.d/ to remove the autologin username from the User= line,
and restarting xdm with systemctl more than once. I gave up and rebooted to try to
get back to no autologin mode. The result of that initially was a black screen
instead of a greeter, and sddm not showing in top. I got the greeter back, but
it's still unresponsive and using excessive CPU.
Evolution as taught in public schools is, like religion,
based on faith, not based on science.
