checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!


So what prefixes SHOULD I use? :)
Not sure how this works...

Was curious if you guys could share the commands with me to compile this for Gentoo...

New to Linux, and although I'm running on my own custom compiled kernel, etc... haven't had any experience yet compiling other software... Thanks in advance. :)

Why does it(screensaver) blocks after a few seconds of runing. I have installed a version of Mandriva 2007 and I have a ATI Radeon 9100 graphic card.

It lags when it runs, or just compiling. I am not quite understanding you. I just don't understand how it is so slow when it runs.

I have had no problem installing this and running it under Gentoo, however It is extremely slow, and I don't understand why. I am trying to run it on my notebook at 1400x1050 (default screen resolution) and it has the power to handle most things I throw at it. My laptop is a Thinkpad T60p, with a Core Duo 2500 processor, 1.5Gb of ddr2, and an ATI FireGL 5200. I am using the latest ATI drivers for my card, but this thing just crawls. Even if I run it at 800x600. Any ideas?

I'm also having problems with this screensaver. I compiled / installed it and it shows up, but even during the preview (in the little window when selecting screensavers) it makes CPU usage spike to ~80-90%. This usually happens within 1-2 seconds of starting it. And yes 3D rendering is enabled, as all other OpenGL screensavers work perfectly fine. Anybody have any suggestions?

update you graphic card drivers.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's the first thing I checked. I can assure you the drivers are up to date, as all other OpenGL screensavers and games (including Doom3) run without a hitch.

Hi

KCometen3 is cool.

I have some problems in my system.
I use fedora core

After full installation, i run this screensaver. In 15-25 seconds my system hung up.

after 3 reboots the result of testing has not changed

use someone this in fedora?
or have any ideas to solve the problem?

thanks ;)

Woowww, this is a really nice screensaver. And it runs great. Only problem: I can't find it in my screensavers list :(. The only way to see it is by running it from the console. Got any idea how to fix this?

For SUSE 10.1 you have to build with
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3
make
sudo make install
Doing so the screensaver will show up in the desktop configuration.

Well,...no ^^

I followed the usual install procedure, everything went fine. Where is it supposed to be in the screensavers list anyway?
