Description of problem:

I had a bad experience upgrading to fedora 16 beta from fedora 15. Because the system now is in a bad state I cant easily debug, therefore this report is lacking in quality.

- I upgraded using preupgrade. this was smooth.

- after reboot the new gnome gdm screen showed up. Surprisingly I had difficulty logging in. Entering the pwd did nothing. After clicking around in the gdm screen I was finaly able to login. Subseequent logins had the same issue.

- after finaly logging in, the gnome shell did not start properly. The window  manager or whatever didnt start so there were no window borders. I couldnt start new programs or anything. weird.

- after telinit 3 and loging in as my user at the prompt, I could startx from the prompt, thus bypassing gdm.

- now gnome runs in "safe" mode.

- 3d acceleration looks ok with glxgears and glxinfo

- pulseaudio doesnt work

So why did you open the bug against preuprade...

You need to file specific bugs against the other components, I can't debug all the issues on this bug. Sorry.
