Description John Marshall 2010-10-27 23:30:08 UTC
Following upgrade of this port from 5.11 to 5.12 the gltext screensaver
would exhaust memory resources and then...

  rwpc12 kernel: pid 34420 (gltext), ..., was killed: out of swap space

I contacted the author, Jamie Zawinski, who promptly provided the patch
to hacks/glx/tube.c below.

Fix: The following patch upgrades the port to include the author's patch.

Files touched:

  - Makefile --> Bump PORTREVISION
  - files/patch-hacks_glx_tube.c --> Added
Installing x11/xscreensaver 5.12 on a Pentium III with 512MB RAM
triggered this problem.  I didn't try on a larger system.
