User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Having installed Fedora 2 Test3 with the default settings for my 
graphics card (Intel 830) - the same settings that worked fine with 
FC1 - I ran the screensaver component from prefrences and when I 
clicked on anything beginning with GL, X freezes completely. These 
screensavers worked fine when I was using FC1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open screensaver from prefs menu
2.Click on anything GL (eg - GLMatrix)

Actual Results:  The screen freezes, the preview window of the 
screensaver stays blank and both mouse and keyboard remain locked up. 
I have to reset my laptop every time.

Expected Results:  The preview window should show a miniturised 
version of the screensaver running

Additional info:

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite 1100 with Intel 830 32MB(shared) and 
512 of Memory.

This sounds like a kernel issue that was fixed in 2.6.5-1.350.

Yes, indeed, this is now fixed in rawhide.
