Now that's annoying :)
Would be funny if kernel panics would output stuff like that ;)

You should just put it in your .bashrc or .bash_profile. I don't actually have access to my Gentoo box at the moment (and I'm very sad about that), so I can't test it, but it should work.

It's called Phosphor,

you don't need anything else. I use it to tail my logs.

~/bin/screensaver-log.sh
Code:

#!/bin/bash

sudo tail -f /var/log/messages



Then use xscreensaver-command -pref to change the settings, change text program to /home/username/bin/screensaver-log.sh and set dump pipe and change to suit your likes for speed/fade.

And don't forget to chmod +x screensaver-log.sh

why not just put
Code:
-program "tail -f /var/log/messages"


on the end of the command, since messages are readable by users, and the quotes get rid of the need for the script

Because on my systems, messages isn't readable by normal users. :D So you need to have a wrapper to run sudo.

I couldn't quite think of what I wanted in the .bashrc, but of course fortune! It looks uber geek
