Smolt reports the graphics card as:-

Comment 2 Martin Thain 2010-04-29 15:54:35 EDT
After some searching around and experimentation discovered that the package mesa-dri-drivers-experimental was missing from the liveCD.

I installed mesa-dri-drivers-experimental with yum and restarted the X server.
The error no longer occurred.  


Maybe mesa-dri-drivers-experimental should be added to the liveCD?
Comment 3 Ben Skeggs 2010-04-29 18:50:58 EDT
It's not a bug.  The message is simply saying that a "real" 3D driver isn't available for AIGLX.

The mesa-dri-drivers-experimental are not installed by default for good reasons (potentially unstable), so can't be included on the LiveCD as of yet.
