Notebook Sony VAIO vpcz13S9R (dual graphics adapter Intel/NVidia). Opensuse 12.1. Everything was perfect until i decided to force NVidia card to work.
After NVidia driver installation gnome run in a fallback mode.
Start of gnome-shell fails due to error:
@sony:~> gnome-shell --replace
failed to create drawable
(gnome-shell:3510): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to select the newly created GLX context
Window manager error: Unable to initialize Clutter.
Any help will be apreciated.
This might help
After doing a bit more of research, and looking into my Xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log for the most recent one), I realized that the problem was that my nVidia driver was incorrectly compiled, for it had no DRI support (which is required for running gnome-shell). The solution lied in installing the Xorg development files (sudo apt-get install xorg-dev should do) and recompiling the nVidia driver.
After this, I rebooted and everything was working properly.

Thanks for reply. I have dual graphics system which can’t be switched by any options in BIOS. By default, intel graphics is being used. So I have a malfunctioned Clutter with Intel graphics card.
