My F7 install has few screen saver preferences compared to, say, Ubuntu 7.10. What packages are there out there to extend my available screen savers? What have you found that you really like?

Some people do this as one option:

yum remove gnome-screensaver

and then:

yum install xscreensaver-extras xscreensaver-gl-extras xscreensaver-base

xscreensaver comes with LOADS of options, really recommended.

Yeah, I don't understand why the Gnome-Screensaver only comes with a few modules in Fedora but in an Ubuntu install I did for someone, it has loads!

There are also rss-glx screensavers who play nice together with xscreensaver or gnome-screensaver

rss-glx-xscreensaver
rss-glx-gnome-screensaver
