ok I see, we will switch back to pulseaudio 2.1 because of compilling the bas with it, and this will make us go ahead with a stable desktop quicker.

this problem, does not affect dropline, when you start it with startx, it's just related with gdm.

Another personal suggestion is to push the xinitrc.gnome in the gnome-session package, because it's in the gdm package

and gdm, is not concerned by this file.

gmgf, I have issues with gnome-session.
in my vm it goes into fallback (which is normal), but on my desktop is runs normal.
what I can see from your patch is that it diregards the hardware acceleration and not uses fallback mode in any case.
correct me if this iss wrong.

This patch removes the use of root authentication.
this patch will be considered by the devs.

the gnome-session-3.3.1-llvmpipe.patch, is for 'gnome-session' package, it make gdm work correctly , without this patch, 'gdm', and 'gnome-shell' run in fallback mode, here, on radeon card, with the xorg ati driver, i don't
have tested with other hardware because i have only radeon card.


this patch is used, by archlinux, fedora and probably, many other distro.

gmgf

This patch would mean we change the way slackware works.
give everyone root access.
It should be up to the Administrator of the server who to give this access.
If you would like to give users the access in changins settings, adding printers etc.
You should put them into the group wheel, or they should know the root password.

Hi gmgf,

can you see if the gnome-session packages works for you.

http://dropline.omgwtfroflol.com/3.6...i686-2dlba.txz
http://dropline.omgwtfroflol.com/3.6...-2dlba.txz.md5

Please note that if we include this patch, than fallback mode is completly ommited.
software rendering for gnome-shell might be slow, specially when used in VM.
