I just installed Fedora 17 for a friend of mine who has ATI Radeon 9200 Pro but GNOME 3 fails to load, I only get fallback mode.
Is this GNOME 3 issue or some bug in radeon drivers? Are there any tricks to make it work? Do proprietary drivers help?
I also reported this bug to Fedora bugzilla because I couldn't find anybody reporting this issue with this hardware - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=826420
