Fedora Installation :: Force The Gnome Fallback To Start Up Directly On A Reboot?

Aug 12, 2011

After a great deal of pain I have Fedora 15 running in Virtual Box 4.1 on a older Mac Book Pro running Lion. When I boot Fedora 15 I get a black screen. I can get a virtual console by banging on the fn ctrl option f2 keys I can then use 'startx' to get another black screen but clicking around for a bit gives me the gnome fallback windowing. Is there any way I can force the gnome fallback to start up directly on a reboot?

Fedora Installation :: 15 Error Gnome 3 Failed To Start Properly And Started In Fallback Mode?

i have installed Fedora 15 from USB and it error

GNOME 3 Failed to Load
Unfortunately GNOME 3 failed to start properly and started in the fallback mode.This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience.

.The interface is now Gnome 2. I have not change screen resolution 1280�720, now is 1024x768.

Result of xrandr -q

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Fallback - Gnome-panel - Bug?

May 31, 2011

OR IS IT A FEATURE?

I've managed to ALT-RIGHT-click-add some launchers to the top gnome-panel. When i now click on a launcher the gnome-panel crashes(?) and reappeares, but the program starts without problems. If i do this two times in a row (1 sec diff or so) the gnome-crash screen appears and i've got to log out although all the programs are still running without any problems.

dmesg shows this: [14460.034820] gnome-panel[4428]: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Fallback. Can't Recover Clock And Notification Area?

Fedora :: Can't Start Directly In Runlevel 5 ?

Nov 18, 2010

I am using Fedora 13. If I boot directly to runlevel 5, the Fedora progress bar goes all the way across and then just stays at 100% and X never loads. I have to hard-restart the machine. However, if I press 'a' to append the kernel arguments and append the '3' to start in runlevel 3, login at the terminal that is displayed, and then type 'startx', everything works perfectly.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome 3 Is In Fallback Mode Not Working

Aug 29, 2011

Using the Nvidia driver from the repo on a Geforce 6800gs. In Kde4 all 3d applications seem to be working properly so I don't know why Gnome 3 is doing that myself. It wasn't working at all at one point and I am assuming that some update or another got it going. Perhaps a repo switch. Unfortunately I am not sure of what those changes may be. I just know that it does run now but only in fallback.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome 3 Defaults To Fallback Mode

Feb 11, 2015

I recently installed Wheezy from a DVD (that was written almost a year and half ago) to my desktop. The DVD install was a minimal one, so after installation I updated the system and installed gnome. But after reboot, my gnome always falls back to gnome-classic.

Code: Select all$ gnome-shell --version
GNOME Shell 3.4.2
$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 7
l

May be some firmware is missing, so I installed firmware-linux, firmware-linux-free, firmware-linux-nonfree, firmware-realtek, firmware-atheros (last two following a boot time warning). That did not solve the problem, so I just did Code: Select all$ sudo apt-get install firmware-* That also did not solve the problem.

Then I looked into my .xsession-errors file:

Code: Select all/etc/gdm3/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
localuser:somesh being added to access control list
openConnection: connect: No such file or directory
cannot connect to brltty at :0
gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support.

[code]...

I also installed "libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental" from another post I found in this forum.But gnome still falls back to gnome-classic.My hardware is: Core i5-4440, Intel onboard graphics, realtek audio and network.

I upgraded Sunday evening from FC14 to FC15 using the yum preupgrade method. Services such as httpd, vsftpd, sshd, named and even the VNC server are all running. I can connect via VNC client and get a downgraded gnome desktop, but from the console, I cannot start X or gnome desktop.I have searched many threads over the last day+ and found many references to problems with nVidia drivers - and I have a nVidia adapter. but I am not sure what is next to do and need a lead.

Fedora Installation :: Gnome Failed To Start - Some Features Not Available

Aug 20, 2011

I am having some problems installing Fedora 15 64-bit. I use the install DVD. I have an AMD Phenom and a NVidia 8600GTS. When I install using the normal method, my screen freezes somewhere in the settings screen for choosing the computer name. If I use the basic video driver for installing I have no problem. However after everything is installed, and Fedora starts, Gnome says that it failed to start and some features are not available.

I found some information at [URL] that I tried. However after installing kmod-nvidia and rebooting I no longer see any graphical display. A lot of text is on the screen without any error, but no x-windows appears. What can I do to install Fedora correctly and have a good working system? Is the 32-bit version easier to get it working? How can you recover from a system that does not start? What I could do to recover from it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Reboot Directly To Another System?

Jul 7, 2010

in a previous version of openSUSE (I think it was v10.3), there was a possibility to directly/automatically start another OS after exiting (rebooting) openSUSE. This could be done through "right-clicking" on the Reboot (Restart) button from the KDE's log-off dialog and choosing the OS you wanted to be started after the restart. Please, does anybody know if this is possible in openSUSE 11.2 (KDE 4.4)? PS: I know that GRUB enables that, but I prefer a "GUI way" rather than using command line and editing configuration files

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Freezing - Cannot Force Reboot - Shutdown - Run - Enter Terminal

Two or three times on a daily basis it just freezes and I do not know why. For example, I am doing some minor coding, surfing the web and just some regular stuff and suddenly, out of nowhere, it just freezes. I cannot force reboot, cannot shutdown, cannot run, cannot enter terminal, nothing. Totally helpless. Only physical reboot do the work. Never had this issue before.

Fedora :: Gnome Desktop Wallpaper Changes Don't Stay In Effect After Reboot

Jun 9, 2010

This is something that I started to notice in F12 and it appears to be the case as well in F13. Any changes that I make to my desktop wallpaper in Gnome don't stay in effect after a reboot. Any ideas as to what is going on here? I don't mind the default blue swirly thing in F13, but I at least want the style change from scale to center to stick.

Choosing the 'set as default' option doesn't seem to help either, as that changes the screen you see at the Gnome login. Once I log into my account the default desktop wallpaper is still there.

Fedora :: F14 Gnome Panel Started Reshuffling Items After Reboot / Solution For This?

Sep 4, 2011

Recently my GNOME (bottom) panel started reshuffling items after reboot.
I tried removing the panel, recreating it and placing new items on the panel. After rebooting the PC everything is undone. The panel reshuffles the items (even when the "Lock To Panel" is used). Also the items that are moved to the top panel, after rebooting return to the bottom panel.

Does anyone have a solution for this issue?

Fedora Installation :: Force The 13 To Use Dmraid?

Sep 21, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with onboard ICH9R RAID support. I have successfully used this with Fedora 9 in a striped configuration.Upon moving to Fedora 13 (fresh/clean install from scratch), I've noticed that it is no longer using dmraid. It now appears to be using mdadm. Additionally, I need to select load special drivers (or something close to that) during the install to have it find my array - which I've never had to do before with F9. While the install appears to work ok and then subsequently run, my array is reporting differences .. presumably because it is trying to manage what mdadm is also trying to manage. More importantly, I can no longer take a full image and successfully restore it as I could with the dmraid F9 install. Is there anyway to force F13 to use the dmraid it successfully used previously?
