Gnome (without failsafe) does work - its compiz that has issues and crashes:
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3
is not supported! This is an application bug!
miptree doesn't match image
compiz: intel_regions.c:400: intel_region_copy: Assertion `src->cpp ==
Not sure whats going on there - might be due to windows/icons with offscreen
Switching to metacity seems to be a simple fix:
$ gconftool --type string --set
In my previous post I mentioned that I added kernel options "vga=normal
nomodeset" to /etc/default/grub. I actually added just "nomodeset" - the
actual line is:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
I think this might be important given how fussy the configuration is.
There are a couple of other oddities Ive noticed:
* Suspend/resume & screen power management dont work (hangs) - you need to
disable these in System > Preferences > Power Management
* nm-applet & blueman applet dont like 16-bit color - they work fine but the
icons are in inverse video
* Gnome panel hide scrolls the panel onto the other screen rather than
hiding it - probably a generic dual screen issue
* the displaylink screen does turn green on startup but only for a very
short period (sub-second flash)
Currently no significant issues outstanding that I know of.
