Thread: Gnome 3 failed to load

  1. #1

    Default Gnome 3 failed to load

    Ok, I just installed opensuse 11.4 64 bit. Compiz and everything was working fine on my ati card (mobility 2600) with the default radeon drivers. I added the gnome 3 stable repo, updated fine. But when I rebooted I get booted into the fallback with no 3d effects and it says "gnome 3 failed to load"

    What gives? The drivers were working fine with full acceleration. I know gnome 3 works on this card, I tested it on the fedora live cd just fine.

    This seems to happen if gnome-shell isn't installed. But it seems that
    if it is installed, it just respawns too quickly and fails to start.

    Maybe it would better to wait two months and then upgrade.

    Well, for some people that's definitely a valid suggestion. I have a
    test box, though, so I will probably continue to fiddle with it and see
    if I can figure out how to even tell what's wrong.

    That's the thing that's really kinda annoying me about GNOME3 right now -
    if there's a problem, the error messages are no help whatsoever, and
    there's no real indication as to where to look for logs to tell you
    what's wrong.

    Yeah I confirm that after installing gnome-shell and mutter, which weren't installed.
