gnome shell compatible vga cards
 
Hello,

I am wondering if:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV630 [Radeon HD
2600 Series]

is acceptable for the new gnome shell? It seems to work sometimes, and
at other times not. For example, it was working in rawhide (I could get
a shell, anyway), but now it does not work, nor has it ever worked in
F15Alpha TC1.

Is there a "better" vga card for the shell in the radeon series? Is
there an utility that can be run to check if the VGA card is supported
in gnome 3.

TIA

It should work; if it doesn't, that's a bug. File it against
xorg-x11-drv-ati. I should probably set up a tracker for 'Shell doesn't
work' bugs. What happens when it fails? Do you get the fallback mode, or
an uglier failure?

Usually fall back in rawhide. In F15Alpha tc1, mutter falls over.
There is already a bz for the mutter failure. Will test more after
todays branched-report updates.

Thanks for the reply.

Definitely report that one then! You can report against mesa or
xorg-x11-drv-ati but make sure airlied is CCed in.
