blank screen on opengl xscreensavers

I'm running Mesa 6.0, RedHat 9.0, Gnome and xscreensaver 4.14....screen savers used to run but they ran choppy on mesa 3.0 I upgraded to mesa 6.0 and now the screen blanks out no screens. Any way, is there a way to get xscreensaver to operate with opengl without recompiling xscreensaver, I don't think recompiling would solve the blank screen, but I can try again, I install xscreensaver 4.14 are there any rpms out there besides the source and does cvs have a more efficent version of xscreensaver. I don't think its the saver software I think it has something to do with my opengl configuration but I've followed the installation instructions for my Geforce 2 GTS and everything works on Redhat except the screens.
