Description J. William Cupp 2005-07-31 22:15:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.02 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)

Description of problem:
I have just installed FC 4.  I have preferences to set to run almost any screen 
saver in the installation when the station is idle for two minutes, and a new 
screen saver is selected at random on each launch, and every ten minutes 

In the few days FC 4 has been running, quite a number of times I enter the room 
and see the screen black, with yellow text error message stating that "screen 
saver (thus-and-so) aborted abnormally" or some such wording.  

I don't know which all ones don't run (yet) and which ones do; since there are 
so many failures I suspect the problem is really in the launcher, not the 
individual screen saver routines.  (All of them worked fine with FC 3 before 
last week.)

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
I'd have to manually attempt to launch each screen saver routine to see which 
ones work and which ones don't.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

I have upgraded to Fedora Core 5 and the problem no longer manifests itself.
