Description of problem:
The PI of my project (a JHU professor) was in a meeting in his office this
morning and xscreensaver came on in phosphor mode. All parties were very
surprised to see it display something about midgets sodomizing cats.
It seems that the phosphor screensaver uses the zippy fortune by default. This
should be changed. I think a more professional default choice would be
literature fortunes. This is *very* important in business and education
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xscreensaver in phosphor mode
Actual Results: Fortunes that are inappropriate in a professional environment.
Expected Results: Nice, safe, inoffensive fortunes.
I agree with this assessment, and I had thought that this was addressed a long
time ago (Red Hat 5 era).
This is fixed in the current rawhide packages.
