I tried to install catalyst 11.11 on Suse 12.1 with gnome shell to see the results. I generated the package and installed it just fine. I ran aticonfig --initial and rebooted. But instead of GDM loading I got a cursor with the wait symbol (spinning disk). So I can't even log in, I just get a cursor and background waiting on gdm. I then did a ctrl+alt+f3 to drop to a console, log in and remove the package, now everything is working fine on the OSS driver. Any ideas on whats causing GDM to lock up?
