Please reinstall collectd from a non-X-based terminal and see if the
same issue arises. Then, after a couple of minutes, try to get
information about the current load, memory usage, CPU usage and the
memory and CPU usage of collectd (e.g. "top -p `pidof collectd`"
provides all of that information - a screenshot would help a lot: "top
-p `pidof collectd` -n 1 > top.out").
