Description Bruno Wolff III 2006-04-29 15:50:39 EDT
Description of problem:
While playing supermele in The Uq-quan Masters (from extras) using a Gravis
Gamepad the screen saver kicked in even though I was actively doing stuff (using
the directional pad and buttons on the gamepad). I couldn't use the gamepad to
exit the screen saver and ended up using the mouse to do it instead.
I am running a gnome desktop (so I suspect, but don't know for certain, that
gnome-screensaver was the screen saver that activated.
uqm was installed from fc5 extras.
Since the Gravis gamepad isn't autodetected at boot time (or during the install)
I added the following to my rc.local file:
/sbin/modprobe joydev
/sbin/modprobe analog
/sbin/modprobe ns558

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-screensaver-2.14.1-1.fc5.1


How reproducible:
I didn't try this multiple times, but I expect it to be easy to reproduce.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play UQM Supermelee with only a gamepad until the screen saver kicks in.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
The screen saver kicks in the middle of melee.


Expected results:
No interuptions.

Hi,

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?

(this is a mass message)

I just retested it in rawhide and it is still happening.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-13 22:09:35 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 18:09:34 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 13:17:17 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 6 Adam Goode 2014-03-21 22:09:14 EDT
This is still true in Gnome 3 in Fedora 20.

When the screensaver starts, fullscreen games are disrupted.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
