W00t? This has nothing to do with your compilation but everything with Ubuntu pushing buggy packages again.
Anyway, from messing around, problem seems to be
GLX extension missing on 0:0
(and there is no aptitude on the liveCD - using apt-get)

Interesting afternoon. Following a lead a few pages back, I did a clean install using the minimal.iso, used the admin/expert mode and just did the skinniest base system install I could. Then added the UGR PPA's and installed about 550MB of dependant packages. Using the Radeon driver, I now have a Gnome 3 shell that runs perfectly! Try the ATI/fglrx driver and it turns to soup again...ho hum. Still, the point is, ATI graphics card + Gnome 3 = happy!
Not sure why I couldn't get (g)Natty 64 to work like this tho'.
As soon as you get to the menu .......
Just do Ctrl + Alt + F1
in the terminal type
sudo apt-get remove kdm
choose gdm when it asks you to .....
The Network manager should still be running .... as before ..... kdm is not a faulty
package ...... as far as I know .......

Hmm only on empty keyring password, so now it works with some bs pass in there. Anyway changing the display manager does not work, I keep getting:
Xlib: "Extension GLX missing on display 0:0"
You guys reply too fast!
Awww damn Gnome3 failed to load on my current laptop due to, according to the popup, bad hardware (Thinkpad Edge with Intel HD graphics). Back to Compiz.How did you load Gnome 3 by the way ?Compiz works but maybe Mutter does not with my video card out of the box. Dunno. The installed system is 10.04 maybe there's a change in drivers. Can't say. No restricted drivers, intel doesn't have any.
are you on 10.04 and have you done some sort of upgrade ...... on that ....
Noo, noo, 10.04/Compiz is my OS. I am not touching that. Gnome 3 is from the liveCD 11.04 torrent in the first post I downloaded. Wanted to see how it performs on this laptop but no way I am gonna replace my main OS at this stage!
However I've fiddled around too long with this I still haven't finished my work for today. Damn me and my curiosity.
Keep up the good work!
