I have a netbook. Acer one aspire with intel gma 945 built in graphics card (i believe - there is no sure way for me to tell in OpenSUSE that I know of because unlike windows theirs no right click on computer - properties)
When i first installed OpenSuse i got all the gnome affects like wobbly windows and what not. after my upgrade to the official gnome three repo’s apparently it failed to start because my graphics device isn’t supported?
I don’t see an edit button - so sorry for the double post but I wanted to add this:
My acer aspire one with 1 gig of ram, 160 gig hard drive and a intel gma 945 can do the full aero experience and run smoothly in windows 7 ultimate and windows vista ultimate - so why can’t i do gnome…? that makes absolutely no sense. I obviously have enough hardware acceleration for windows 7 and vista ultimate but not for gnome? I think thats ass backwards! and ludicris
No I did not. I did not know (i knew distros shipped with) that there was a seperate graphics driver. When i first installed open suse it just worked out of the box with effects. when i upgraded to gnome 3 thats when **** hit the fan
Any ways it still gives me the same results but im trying the link you gave me.
With that repo it still doesnt load properly -ill post back after I try the link you gave me.
By load properly i mean it doesnt work gnome 3 is still broken in the sense that its in fugly fall back mode
and now a problem:
Xorg -configure in run level 3 give me:
fatal server error:
cannot move old log file “/var/log/Xorg.0.log” to"/var/log/xorg.0.log.old"
makes sense. when the suse repos come out or become more stable and way more better. will switching from what the live cd installs to suse be as easy as disabling the ones that come on the live cd and enabling the ones that suse gives?
All you need to do is disable the fcrozat repository, add the gnome 3 one then open YaST software management and select the repository view, scroll to the Gnome 3 and select ‘switch installed packages to the ones in this repository’
I wouldn’t run tumbleweed on the Gnome 3 install. Create another install (on a separate partition) from 11.4 and upgrade from that.
