    Default Cannot login after upgrading to Gnome 3

    Well I am in trouble here.

    I added the repo Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/3.0/openSUSE_11.4

    then did
    Code:
    zypper dup
    After the installation completed I tried to logout (from Gnome 3 shell) but couldn't. A notification appeared saying "cannot find gnome save session" or something similar.

    Then pressed ctrl+alt+F2 then used the reboot command as root

    After booting the new looking login screen appeared but after typing my password when I tried to login it said "something has gone wrong" and the only option which I see there is logout.

    Please help.

    I have a similar problem,I upgraded to Gnome 3 using zypper dup but I cant log in into it,it always says that something has gone wrong when I attempt to log in.Unlike the original poster I could log out of the broken Gnome 3 session with no problems.

    The problem while logout only occurred once. Now that's gone. But I still can't login.

    Gnome 2 wasn't that bad!!!!

    Code:

    Now you are in kernel mode or in Safe mode?

    I do not no if the Gnome 3 preview shell would have anything to do with it, But I would un-install it before the update to Gnome 3.
    Did you have the preview installed before the update.

    But then again it may not matter.
