fc6 xscreensaver

Hello all, I have tried for the last three days to research this issue, to no avail, any assitance would be greatly appreciated.
I installed xscreensaver in fc6, however the screen savers seem to be in warped speed...trying to use the settings from fast too slow does not work...even in the lowest speed setting the screen savers themselves are in overdrive, blinking fast. Not sure if this makes a lot of sense, but if any one in this great community can assist I would greatly appreciate it.
I have uninstalled the gnome-screensaver, removed and reinstalled the xscreensaver, but blinking is out of control. Not sure updating will help, sense it is taking two dyas to do so...with yum and yumex....if there is another setting I can use I will of course give it a go.

Try running this in a terminal:
Code:
$ xscreensaver-demo
and see if you can make any settings adjustments.
If that doesn't work you may have to un/reinstall xscreensaver.
Could be a graphics card issue too?

Thank U for the reply ryptyde- they seem to be blinking off the chain still...noticed that not all of them are on warp drive...like fiberlamp. After I closed the demo...this was left in the terminal:
xscreensaver-demo: 11:39:34 /usr/share/xscreensaver/config/molecule.xml: duplicate switch "-fps" (This is written twice)
Then
molecule : warning: blocked event processing for 1.9 secs!
molecule: warning: only 2% idle over the last 11 secs (at 1.2 FPS)

Not sure what this means, but I'll keep plugging at it, while I'm trying to up date the Yumex that won't update or install
I'll also look around the pile to see if I have another graphics card....

After trying several months to get fc6 to work, hoping I could get a litle assist...for the starnge behavior of the screensaver and failure to yum update (another post)the only thing I can do now is pull fc6 from the computer. fc5 was working fine on the computer I have 6 on...oh well--i'll try suse, or another distro, since I have fc4 on another computer. Thanks to all those that tried to assist.
