Hi Carla

If you're using a screensaver, a 3D screensaver or a 3D graphics driver 
I've had problems with these not 'agreeing' with each other especially 
after a kernel upgrade. Set your screensaver to 1 minute and wait and 
see or play Tux Racer and leave the game running for a while without 
playing it and watch.

"Mostly, it's serious fun for free software geeks, and
anyone else who believes that Linus' Law, "given enough eyeballs, all
bugs are shallow", is the path to better software" said Donna Benjamin,
Director of the linux.conf.au 2008 conference.
