Gnome Shell and Intel i8xx
Ok, I am dumbfounded by this issue.
I use a Dell latitude d400, which uses Intel i855-GM graphics.
I would like to find a Distro that Gnome 3's shell will work with my graphics.
I have tried:
Fedora 15- was able to modify blacklist file (remove i8xx from the list), but the shell's rendering was full of errors
openSUSE gnome 3 re-spin- same rendering errors as above
Linux mint 11- when added the proper ppa and updated and installed the right stuff, it refused to start clutter.
In addition, some other questions:
1. is this related to the latest intel driver's architecture? I remember i8xx and i915 having bugs with it.
2. Is there any future hope for my laptop to run the shell or should I start saving up for a newer laptop?
