#12814: gnome is missing

            Priority:  high          |      Milestone:  14.1.0
           Component:  not assigned  |        Version:  Development build
          Resolution:                |  as of this date
          Blocked By:                |       Keywords:  41003o4
Deployments affected:                |       Blocking:  12834, 12836
            Verified:  0             |  Action Needed:  design
Changes (by Quozl):

 * next_action:  diagnose => design


 Diagnosis: the failure to start was caused by missing packages ''gnome-
 shell'', ''mesa-dri-drivers'', and the disabled ''glx'' module in
 xorg.conf.  Gnome itself requires 3D acceleration support.

 Workaround: add OpenGL support, add package ''gnome-shell'', change
 xorg.conf to ensure ''glx'' is enabled.

  * per #11810, edit ''/usr/share/olpc-utils/xorg.conf.d/xo4.conf'' and
 remove these lines:
 Section "Module"
        Disable "glx"
  * restart the display manager:
 service olpc-dm restart
  * ''gnome-shell'' can then be started from the xterm that was set up to
 replace gnome-session-failed.
  * it runs properly, but very slowly, as expected, because of software
 OpenGL implementation.
