Description of problem:
Though the xscreensaver utility is available under Desktop > Preferences > Screensaver, no xscreensaver modules exist in the listing under the Display Mode tab. Also while verifying the rpm version, it says it is not installed. I checked with Add/Remove Applications utility and can find no xscreensaver package as an option to install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
package xscreensaver is not installed
Steps to Reproduce:
1.navigate Desktop > Preferences >
Actual Results: N/A
Expected Results: N/A
In FC4 xscreensaver got split up into three packages:
xscreensaver-base, xscreensaver-extras, and xscreensaver-gl-extras.
By default only xscreensaver-base gets installed, which only comes with blank
screen. If you want more screensavers install either the xscreensaver-extras
or xscreensaver-gl-extras package (or both).
I can see xscreensaver-base in core, but no xscreensaver-extras or
xscreensaver-gl-extras in extras. This means we need to run rpmbuild on
the source rpm to get the missing two, right?
