I have no idea about that specific card, but it should be easy to use a
Fedora live media and test it out and see how well it works.

It looks like it is a AMD Radeon HD 6480G.
I believe those are supported by the radeon driver.

He meant the radeon driver. IMO stands for "in my opinion".

Well, guess you can see that I don't do much 'texting' thanks for
pointer to the radeon driver!!!

Kevin,

Thanks for your post. It would not work with the FC16 LiveCD, but it
did work with FC17-Alpha LiveCD. 17 is going to be out in a couple of
months so maybe there is some hope for using gnome3 on this HP Pavillon
g7 laptop.

Did u try KDE? Just to be sure, you're sure it's the Kernel that's
having the issue not the DE?

Junayeed,

Yes, I have used KDE, as well as XFCE without a problem. This appears
to be a gnome3 issue. Interesting thing is that when I first put F16 on
the system gnome3 did not work, but after they made some kernel updates
and with akmod-catalyst gnome3 worked for a long time. About a month
ago gnome3 stopped working again. I thought I had dome something to it
myself so I did a new install of F16, and have never had gnome3 working
on the new install. I have been able to get gnome3 to work with the
F17-LiveCD on this machine so there has been some good changes there. I
plan to limp along with what I have, and do a fresh install of 17 when
it comes out.

That's why its a good idea to versionlock things like AMD Graphics
card driver with whatever kernel that seems to work.
