Description anshul nigham 2006-02-24 22:46:00 EST
Description of problem:
Screensaver not working, correspondingly, "Lock Screen" not working. KDE Control
Center, Screensaver, only shows the welcome screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.5.1-2.2 Build Date 12-Feb 2006

How reproducible:
Install Fedora Core 5 Test 3, try and lock screen or start screensaver.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5-test3, with KDE
2. Attempt to lock screen
3. Go to KDE Control Center, Appearance/Themes -> Screen Saver
  
Actual results:
Nothing happens on Lock screen, KDE Control Center shows welcome screen under
ScreenSaver (screenshot attached)

Expected results:
Screen should lock and screensaver should start on lock screen, KDE Control
Center should show screensaver config.

it's strange, the KDE screensaver works fine with FC5test3 on the test machine
here. Could you please try to login with a new user and check if the problem
still appears? Thanks
Comment 3 anshul nigham 2006-02-27 05:45:27 EST
I created a brand new user, still the same issue. Logged in as root, still the
same issue. Is it something that I didn't install? I installed mostly the
default stuff, except I did not install GNOME.
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2006-02-27 06:32:17 EST
it seems there're some packages missing on my system. Could you please attach
the output of "rpm -qa"? thanks

output of rpm -qa

As requested.
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2006-02-27 09:19:03 EST
could you please install the following packages?   
  xscreensaver-base-4.24-1.1  
  xscreensaver-gl-extras-4.24-1.1  
  
Does the problem still appear? If yes, please try to create the strace back of  
kde screensaver with following command line: 
 
 strace -f -o xs.log kcmshell screensaver. 
 
Thanks

strace error

Installing xscreensaver packages did not help. If I try to start strace (as
root), it gives me this error. I have not upgraded FC5t3 from anything - its
running on a separate partition from FC4. I am reusing my FC4 home partition
for my home directory though, could that be the problem?

Try right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Configure Desktop".  Then go 
to the Screen Saver tab.  Do you see the error message "libGL.so.1: cannot 
enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied"?  If so, 
the root problem is probably the same one referenced in Bug 182380.  It appears 
to be an SELinux issue.

For the record, I am observing the above.  I am running FC5 Test 3 x86_64 using 
an integrated ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 (Shuttle ST20G5 motherboard).
Comment 9 Toby Ovod-Everett 2006-03-05 17:07:47 EST
I ran yum update and let it update hundreds of packages and the screensaver 
problem has now resolved itself.  The OpenGL Screen Savers don't appear to 
work, but the other ones display and appear to work.

Yes, I do get this error as well.

Yes, yum update does indeed solve the problem. Thanks
