Default F8 screensaver choices

Most of my machines have the usual great long list of choices,
from abstractile to zoom; but one has only three : flame, hopalong, and
rocks. Right-clicking the icon and choosing Properties shows the same
command : xscreensaver-demo. Pirut, set to list on both machines, shows
the same seven xscreensaver options, and all are checked on both.

Why am I geting only such a paucity of choices on the one? What
should I do about it? Is there something somewhere that should be enabled
and isn't??

I think you missed a detail (emphasized above). But I tried it,
and sure enough :

Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package xscreensaver-extras - 1:5.04-1.fc8.i386 is already installed.
Package xscreensaver-gl-extras - 1:5.04-1.fc8.i386 is already installed.
Package xscreensaver-gl-base - 1:5.04-1.fc8.i386 is already installed.
Nothing to do
[root@localhost ~]#

So, having established that, what next?

It says it already has that, too.
