Description Tomas Thiemel 2017-11-13 00:13:32 UTC
From time to time, htop 2.0.2 "cripples" CPU info as per diff below. Don't know why :-(

Is this still an issue with =sys-process/htop-2.2.0 release?

Yes, still happens ocasionally. In =sys-process/htop-2.2.0 too :-(
Comment 3 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2019-05-03 16:51:57 UTC
Can you perhaps attach screenshots? One "before" and one "after" the crippling would be sufficient.
Comment 4 Tomas Thiemel 2019-05-13 14:04:54 UTC
Hi,
after "heavy testing" the bug did not occur for some (long) time. Weird. It may be related to (my) specific OS configuration.

Let's assume it has been fixed.

Thank you.

Hi,
finally I was able to reproduce the bug 🤓️

1)
# htop --version
htop 2.2.0 - (C) 2004-2019 Hisham Muhammad


2)
# cat /root/.config/htop/htoprc
# Beware! This file is rewritten by htop when settings are changed in the interface.
# The parser is also very primitive, and not human-friendly.

3)
Now:
- run htop
- change the view (e.g. press "F5" or press "P")
- quit htop BEFORE the screen is refreshed (less than 3 sec)

4)
Voilà, config is "crippled":

Sorry for error, here is "uncrippled" version: 😔️
