Hello,
This is my first post to this sight. I have red hat 6.2 loaded and my screen savers won't work. I wiped out the system and reloaded and the same thing. When it's time for htem to come on I just get a dark COLORED screen. It doesn't really evn go blank. I am trying to run the screen saver atlantis or atlantic or something like that.
Thanks,
thescribe7

Are you logged in as root? Last I checked xscreensaver will not start if you are logged in as root.
