Description Jamie Zawinski 2004-12-20 18:32:06 EST
This patch (included with xscreensaver-4.10-8.src.rpm from
updates/enterprise/3desktop/) is apparently intended to omit
uninstalled programs from the list in xscreensaver-demo --
but that's what the "ignoreUninstalledPrograms" preference

You already set "ignoreUninstalledPrograms: True" in 
xscreensaver-4.06-rh.patch, so 
xscreensaver-4.10-skip-unavailable-hacks.patch is redundant.

The only effect that the latter patch has is to make it
impossible for users to set"ignoreUninstalledPrograms"
to False, if that's what they prefer.
