    Hello. I am using Sarge on a Dell OptiPlex GX 110 (which i believe has
    i810 graphics) and am trying to get xscreensaver setup. When i run
    xscreensaver-demo, i get errors on the terminal from which i ran it.
    Some screen savers work perfectly when i preview them, but most of them
    cause xscreensaver-demo to crash when i leave the preview. I've
    included a sample of the types of errors that occur on the terminal. Is
    there something i'm missing? I have the DRI module loaded in my
    /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. If necessary, i can post my XF86Config-4 and/or
    a list of packages that are installed.

    Also, some of the screen savers display error messages in yellow text in
    the upper left corner of the display while they are running. The screen
    savers that do this seem to work OK, but they give errors. Is there a
    way to send errors to /dev/null instead of writing them on the screen?

    Sample xscreensaver-demo error output:
