View Full Version : ld-linux.so.2 ?? What is it?

14th May 2008, 05:49 AM
Hi all,
every now and then something loads my system right up. When i do a top i find that "ld-linux.so.2" is the culprit. I usually have two of them going and both are sucking up about 48% cpu and my load time goes through the roof.
When i kill it, all is well.

A few specs if that helps:

From a terminal type

man ld-linux

and see if that helps explain things
