Description Hans de Goede 2012-03-20 09:07:41 EDT
While testing:

With a plugable extra seat adding device:

Using the udlfb framebuffer driver, gnome-shell crashes really quick. This results on the
login screen on the second seat usually showing the "Something has gone wrong" screen.

After upgrading to the latest mesa for F-17 from koji I managed to login once, but then my
gnome3 session crashed in seconds. Forcing gdm to run in fallback mode by doing:
ln -s /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gdm-fallback.session /var/lib/gdm/.config/gnome-session/sessions/gdm-shell.session

And then running an XFCE session works fine.

This is a rather bad issue, making the (really cool) out of the box experience when using a plugable device
completely non working, therefore I'm nominating this as an F17Blocker.
