    Default I am done with GNOME 3

    GDM Manager failed to load when I boot up my ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC with OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Tumbleweed activated twice. When I click on the applications tab, it displays nothing so I have to log out of GNOME 3 to see my wall of applications. I use KDM now. When I select GNOME, it displays the wallpaper with no icons or status bars.

    GNOME 3 is not ready for prime time. I will discontinue using it and stick with KDE. KDE may not be as sexy as GNOME 3, but it just works.

    Hi
    Gnome 3.0 IS ready for prime time, the correct release which is 11.4.

    Furthermore, I'll add form what said malcolm, GNOME3 + Tumbleweed is not an easy task unless you really know what you are doing.

    Check with KDE. I thing you will like it(KDE). About Gnome I have not good experience.

    I use KDE now. It works perfectly. I downgraded to GNOME 2.30. I also removed the Tumbleweed and Packman All of Tumbleweed repositories. So, I am back to OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit. Everything works perfectly now.

    This taught me a valuable lesson. Stick with the default configuration and repositories. For the most part, I have done so.

    The GNOME 3 bug with the NetworkManager effecting KDE's wireless capabilities is no longer a problem for me since I downgraded to GNOME 2.30.

    How do I get rid of GNOME altogether?

    Regarding Tumbleweed and Gnome 3:

    If you upgrade openSUSE 11.4 with Gnome 2 to Gnome 3 and then to Tumbleweed, it works fine.
    But if you try a different sequence, from openSUSE 11.4 with Gnome 2 to Tumbleweed then to Gnome 3, it fails on dependency errors on the final step; however this final step will be valid/fixed in a couple of weeks, according to @gregkh.

    The problem is that GNOME 3 has a problem with the NetworkManager as it effects KDE in that I cannot connect to wireless Wi-Fi networks anymore. I want to remove GNOME entirely. How do I do this?

    Oh I remeber that very well. :-(
    The following is my personal opinion and experience not a technical
    evaluation. It took over two years to have the new KDE 4 in a good shape,
    for me it was not before 4.5 (4.4 to some degree but I still had some nasty
    glitches with KDE applications).
    I used it from the very beginning to become familiar with it (4.0, well
    knowing that this were some kind of beta releases and I think 4.1 was also
    declared as not much more than beta by its developers) side by side with 3.5
    for productive use.
    I think with Gnome 3 one should not expect miracles at prime time, this
    would be unfair. It is after all free software which havily depends on the
    users in the community to test it, the same applies to KDE 4.
    All this is not software made by a big company with a laboratory for testing
    thousands of hardware/software combinations and hundreds of paid testers.
    It will simply take a while until it converges into something which is
    stable for everyone on every hardware of course and time will show if this
    goal can be achieved.
    My personal point of view is that I don't like Gnome 3 at the moment (I
    tried it a bit, it is simply not my cup of tea), but nobody forces me to use
    it and maybe I will look at it out of couriousity in a year or so again,
    just to see what happened to it.
