How do you create a Screensaver.
I want to create one with some animation in it.

A point to resource or step by step would be appreciated.

XScreeSaver was originally written by Jamie Zawinski. You can get the source code from his site - You will definitely find answers to your questions in the Source !

Good Luck

Its for Red Hat (if that helps)
I actually want to do the same thing but I don't have time for it right now. But I've been thinking about it, and I think there must be some source code available for an easy screensaver on the redhad site... I'm gonna do the flames you used to see in a lot of bbs-demos ...
from "list of libX11.a"
