mkfontscale processes eat up CPU
by digital_discuss - 8/27/10 1:54 AM
I see many mkfontscale processes taking a considerable amount of CPU power on my 10.5.8 mac every 5 to 10 seconds. Anyone happen to know what software could initiate mkfontscale? The processes originate from the root account so they are likely to have come with some installation lately. I don't see any clear culprits though.
I have macports installed, but I'm not actually running any apps from there, nor have I installed or compiled anything. X11 is not installed.
What do have is bunch of third party java development tools, but these processes still keeps running after I quit those tools and I've had most of them for years.
Any ideas what too lok for or how to analyze what app or process starts up the mkfontscale processes?
