It should work; if it doesn't, that's a bug. File it against
xorg-x11-drv-ati. I should probably set up a tracker for 'Shell doesn't
work' bugs. What happens when it fails? Do you get the fallback mode, or
an uglier failure?
Usually fall back in rawhide. In F15Alpha tc1, mutter falls over.
There is already a bz for the mutter failure. Will test more after
todays branched-report updates.
Thanks for the reply.
