One of my computers is a laptop, running F 11. I have the classic xscreensaver installed, with all the extras I can, to get as many random screensavers as possible. Alas, some of them won't install unless I alsohave gnome-screensaver as a dependency. Now, every time I boot, I have to go into the screensaver preferences and have xscreensaver turn off gnome-screensaver so that it can work. I don't have it enabled, and I've checked several times with the gnome configuration editor, and it confirms that it's disabled, but it keeps getting in the way. Does anybody here know how to keep it from interfering with xscreensaver?

Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
