I have had Red Hat 5.0 up and running for a week now. I am having a few
slight problems in X that I am concerned might grow into something more
1. I was able to use the screen savers until today... Now when I click on
the "Lock Screen / Screensaver" option in the menu it does not bring the
screensaver up at all. Although there is some disk activity that I can
hear. Also, it I dig into /etc/usr/X11R6/bin then I can run the
from the prompt so there's nothing wrong with the screensavers themselves
and I know there on there because I used them all a couple days ago! I did
not change anything in any config files or anything. It is the same for
users on the machine. Any help would be extremely appreciated.
2. I think this is related to the first problem. Some games do not work
either. I click on them and they never come up: like eight ball snooker
many others. However, some do like Xbill, Xpilot etc. They should be on
there, I installed everything on the disk and there's plenty of room left.
I was thinking it was a display problem but then again, what do I know??
Thanks very much for helping.
The man w/o screensavers,
