I have a weird problem under Antergos.
I use VMware WS10 / VMplayer6 to run a Win7 VM within my Linux setup. I use VMware over VBox because I’m addicted to the VMware unity mode, so I have a seamless integration of Linux and Win. Anyway, after some time of working, I notice that VMware and the application I at the moment use actively both max out one CPU core fully, making the system kind of slow and painful to work with.
Example: I browsing with google-chrome of Antergos happily for an hour or longer. And suddenly, chrome maxes out 1 core and VMware a second one, even though the VM should be idle, since there is no application active. That does not happen with chrome alone but also for example with crossover apps (standard use case for my daily work). After it starts to happen, it continues with about every application usage. Fix is to reboot and I have some peace again for some time.
it does not seem to be DE related since I have the same issue under Cinnamon.
However, it seems to be an Antergos / Arch issue, since I do not observe it under LMDE on the some machine. I didn’t find anything on Google or DuckDuckGo.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and cheers!
