What video driver, and which screensavers?
Comment 2 J.Jansen 2007-10-30 07:10:04 EDT
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

Comment 3 J.Jansen 2007-10-30 07:13:51 EDT
Sorry I'm not running F8 but F7.
Comment 4 J.Jansen 2007-10-30 07:17:03 EDT
I'm not sure, but I think all GL-modes give the problem
Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-10-30 08:36:03 EDT
Would you "attach" the following?
- /etc/X11/xorg.conf
- /var/log/Xorg.0.log
- 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
Comment 10 J.Jansen 2007-10-31 04:09:17 EDT
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.

Comment 11 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-10-31 04:36:02 EDT
So would you check if your problem still appears if you install
Comment 12 J.Jansen 2007-10-31 04:50:28 EDT
As I said: it helped. The problem is gone after installation of xscreensaver-gl-base

Comment 13 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-10-31 05:19:06 EDT
Oh.. I missed it...
