Re: Gnome 3 worked perfectly on the Demo but...
This is most strange, especially for the type of card you have. On my three-year-old laptop (a Toshiba with a Turion X2 and RS690M graphics [X1200]) I can run very well the GNOME3 desktop. However I have the 64-bit version. The only thing I can think of is that the mode for GLX is incorrectly being set on that partcular setup/version of the driver, as you say glxinfo shows you have Direct Rendering ON.
If ain't broken, don't fix it! :eek:
If can be improved, go for it! :cool:
