Linux Memory

Hi. I use PcLinuxOS and today started to add books from directories. As i have a rather large collection i knew this would take time. After 45 minutes it managed to get to 11%, and with 98%-100% continual cpu usage (3.0GHz Dual-Core), all my >3GB ram was used up, and my 2GB swap file reached 100%, consequently the system promptly logged off.

After logging back on i started again, i thought perhaps it would continue from it's last point, but it began scanning at the beginning (though quicker), until it reached 11% then continued slowly with 98%=100% cpu usage. It finally got to 23% before the ram (and swap) was all used up again, at which point it logged off.

Not wishing to continue i thought i would enquire as to help why this should occur.

Regards saiyuki

1) Make sure you are running the latest calibre version 0.7.48

2) If you area dding PDF files, got to preferences->plugins and disable the PDf metadata reader plugin

I installed the 0.7.48 version and the cpu load doesn't appear to go above 40% and the memory usage is much better now. Sorry if it was posted in the wrong section.
