Vbox and GNOME3 issue


I'm running a DELL studio laptop with VBOX and Fedora 16. After installing i got my first error stating

"GNOME 3 failed to load" unfortunately GNOME 3 failed to start properly and started in the fallback mode.

This mostly likely means your system graphics hardware or driver is not capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience.

What other options do i have?

If you're referring to Fedora 16 running inside Oracle VirtualBox, then you can get experimental 3D graphics drivers by installing the Guest Additions. Don't expect miracles, but they do work.

So i think the difference was how i stalled the guestadditions which resolved the issue. After installing guest additions i no longer have an issue. Thanks for your help, though.
