    Exclamation GNOME 3: two vexatious errors

    The first one. Autologin fails on start-up. I disable autologin, but its a little bit annoying.
    The second. GNOME fails too run in all its glory, instead runs in fallback mode. lspci | grep VGA returns
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN700/P4M800 Pro/P4M800 CE/VN800 [S3 UniChrome Pro] (rev 01)
    CPU Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.13GHz, memory 1024MB+256MB. I have openchrome and unichrome drivers installed, but system uses openchrome (due to Xorg.0.log). gnome-shell --replace returns
    ** (gnome-shell:5729): CRITICAL **: dbus_g_proxy_new_for_name: assertion `connection != NULL' failed
    ** (gnome-shell:5729): CRITICAL **: dbus_g_proxy_call: assertion `DBUS_IS_G_PROXY (proxy)' failed

    glxinfo | grep render returns

      Resource id in failed request:  0x3000002
      Serial number of failed request:  44

    Please, help. Thank You.

    Consider yourself lucky. It could be worse.

    On one system, Gnome goes into full mode. But then it crashes when I try to do anything. It won't even stay up long enough to switch to forced fallback mode.

    Fortunately, somebody posted a command line that can be used to force fallback. I used that from a terminal in KDE, so that it is now possible to log into gnome and actually do stuff.
