Description of problem:
When upgraded FC3 to FC4 via installer supplied on DVD, all screensavers disappeared.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade (not reinstall) FC3 to FC4 via installer from DVD disk
2.open screensaver preferences when logged as arbitrary user
3.witness that there are no screensavers listed
Actual Results: all screensavers which were present in previous installed release (FC3) are gone after upgrade to FC4 was performed.
Expected Results: All screensavers present in FC3 should be preserved after upgrade to FC4.
I have realized that the reason why screensavers were missing was that
xscreensaver-extras RPM disappeared during upgrade process. After installing it
from DVD, the screensavers are present again. (though screensaver settings are lost)
