Description of problem:
i dont think the anaconda graphical installer has a screensaver built in...it would be great for a screensaver to start up when the computer is idle, during the install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc3 via anaconda graphical install.
2. no screensaver starts up even when the computer is idle.
Actual Results: no screensaver starts up even though the system is idle for more than 5 minutes.
Expected Results: start up a screensaver say after 3 minutes of idleness.
my processor: amd athlon64 3000+
my motherboard: asus k8v
