xscreensaver demo's crash gnome session
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem: After upgrading to the current version of xscreenaver
and rebooting the machine most xscreensaver demo's crash the gnome session on my
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
do not know, since I did this on one machine only.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade xscreensaver packages to 5.03-12.fc7
3.run xscreensaver either as screensaver or demo's in "preview" mode
crash of gnome session
nice annimation on the screen
What video driver, and which screensavers?
It is a SIS M650 video card, using a "standard" driver from F8.
Most demo's crash i.e : I just let it crash with Voronoi
But the same holds for many others
Sorry I'm not running F8 but F7.
I'm not sure, but I think all GL-modes give the problem
Would you "attach" the following?
- the result of "rpm -qa | sort"
Please don't write directly on this bug report but attach the log.

Well, this should not be.
Did you upgrade xscreensaver by yum? Now xscreensaver-gl-extras
5.03-12.fc7 requires xscreensaver-gl-base
$ rpm -qp --requires xscreensaver-gl-extras-5.03-12.fc7.i386.rpm | grep xscreensaver
xscreensaver-gl-base = 1:5.03-12.fc7
thanks that helped.
I sed yumex to update. As far as I know this is a graphical shell around yum. It
should have picked up the dependencies.
So would you check if your problem still appears if you install
As I said: it helped. The problem is gone after installation of xscreensaver-gl-base
Oh.. I missed it...
