dropline-gnome work correctly on slackware with my gnome-session package for zenwalk, with this patch
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.
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.
Distribution: slack 7.1 till latest and -current, LFS

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.
