bsod(6)			      XScreenSaver manual		       bsod(6)

       bsod - Blue Screen of Death emulator

       bsod  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
       seconds] [-fps]

       The bsod program is the finest in personal computer emulation.

       bsod steps through a set of screens, each one a recreation of a differ‐
       ent failure mode of an operating system.	 Systems depicted include Win‐
       dows  3.1,  Windows  95,	 Windows  NT, MS-DOS, AmigaDOS 1.3, Linux, SCO
       UNIX, BSD UNIX, HPUX, Solaris, Tru64, VMS, HVX/GCOS6, IBM OS/390, OS/2,
       MacOS (MacsBug, Bomb, Sad Mac, and OSX), Atari ST, Apple ][+, and NCD X

       bsod accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

	       Install a private colormap for the window.

       -visual visual
	       Specify which visual to use.  Legal values are the  name	 of  a
	       visual  class,  or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific

       -delay delay
	       The duration each  crash-mode  is  displayed  before  selecting

       -only which
	       Tell it to run only one mode, e.g., -only HPUX.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

	       to  get	the  name of a resource file that overrides the global
	       resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

       Notable X resources supported  include  the  following,	which  control
       which  hacks are displayed and which aren't.  doWindows, doNT, doWin2K,
       doAmiga, doMac,	doMac1,	 doMacsBug,  doMacX,  doSCO,  doAtari,	doBSD,
       doLinux,	 doSparcLinux,	doHPPALinux,  doBlitDamage, doSolaris, doHPUX,
       doApple2, doOS390, doTru64, doVMS, doMSDOS, doOS2,  doHVX,  and	doATM.
       Each  of	 these is a Boolean resource, they all default to true, except
       for doAtari, doBSD, doSparcLinux, and doHPPALinux, which are turned off
       by  default,  because  they're  really not all that interesting looking
       unless you're a fan of those systems.

       There are command-line options for all of these: e.g.,  -bsd,  -no-bsd.
       (Also note the -only option.)

       Unlike  the  systems  being  simulated,	bsod does not require a reboot
       after running.
