Gnome 3 Failure to load F16

I am new to the forums, here, so if this is a repost of a solved problem, I apologize in advance.


I was given an HP Pavillion a600n a few months ago. I've put 2gb of RAM, wireless card, and Fedora 16 on it. When I boot Fedora 16, I first saw this message:
http://i.zdnet.com/blogs/gnome-3-failure.png

I've done nearly everything I can for it, but have had no luck - tried everything from attempting to . Here are the stats from my computer's system:

00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [KM400/A] Chipset Host Bridge
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8237/VX700 PCI Bridge
00:08.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3062 Wireless 802.11n 2T/2R
00:0a.0 Communication controller: LSI Corporation V.92 56K WinModem (rev 03)
00:0b.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6306/7/8 [Fire II(M)] IEEE 1394 OHCI Controller (rev 80)
00:0f.0 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VT6420 SATA RAID Controller (rev 80)
00:0f.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)

00:10.2 USB controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 81)
00:10.3 USB controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 81)
00:10.4 USB controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 86)
00:11.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8237 ISA bridge [KT600/K8T800/K8T890 South]
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)
00:11.6 Communication controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. AC'97 Modem Controller (rev 80)
00:12.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 78)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. KM400/KN400/P4M800 [S3 UniChrome] (rev 01)


I'm at a crossroads, debating if Gnome3 is even worth it at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Gnome 3 Failure to load F16

See if you have the mesa-dri-drivers-dri1 package installed which contains the unichrome_dri.so driver.

If not, then do this

su -
yum install mesa-dri-drivers-dri1

Re: Gnome 3 Failure to load F16

Look through /var/log/Xorg.0.log for any errors (EE) or warnings (WW). Examine the output of the glxinfo command, specifically the server glx and client glx information, and the OpenGL information.

Another thing I am not sure of is a list of which video hardware is blacklisted in the gnome-shell. I know the intel 8xx cards are, not sure about your via unichrome.
