I'm having a heck of a time trying to get GNOME 3 running on a current generation iMac with its ATI Mobility 4670 graphics card
fglrx works but has some horrific issues with the activities bar (as covered here http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=99 ) and multiple monitors (no bug filed yet, but basically the second screen's output is horrifically corrupted)
The default radeon driver appears to be out of the question - kernel seems to lockup whenever the module is loaded. Some bugs floating about imply this is a kernel issue. This problem is so severe I need to add fglrx as an Add-On product during installation or else I can't get the install to continue after the file copy.
I've tried but I cant seem to get the radeonHD driver to work either - constantly complaining about No Screens Found.
I'm not having any issues on my nvidia or intel machines, really making me hate AMD/ATI now
Anyone got any ideas on how to get GNOME 3 working on this most frustrating bucket of bolts?
