Re: Problem with 100% CPU and fan running
Thanks for responding. I do have a dual core AMD processor. And as far as
suspecting pthreads, it was just my first guess. I don't think there is
anything wrong with pthreads. I think it's maybe the program logic and how
the threading is being used. I honestly don't know. As you probably have
figured out, my knowledge of threading is not that strong.
I'm not sure how to isolate the problem. Do you have any suggestions?
