opengl problem

i'm using xscreensaver with kahakai (waimea fork, blackbox kind windowmanager). xscreensaver uses opengl and -unfortunately- unreal tournament uses opengl as well.

i got xscreensaver in my autostart, it works fine until i play ut and exit. after exiting ut, it appearently turns off opengl and -with that- my screensaver. so i have to restart my wm if i want xscreensaver to work again (or type xscreensaver again )

what can i do to fix this. or can some1 recommend me a screensaver that i can put in my autostart as well and doesn't use opengl?

looking forward to any solutins

instead of another screensaver, maybe you could write a script that will open ut2003. When ut2003 closes, it will run xsreensaver for you. That way it will all be done without you having to worry about it as long as you use your new script to play ut2003
