After several hours of ``package.keywords``/``package.use`` editing and package compiling, I
managed to install GNOME 3 on my notebook. Well, I mean, the GNOME 3 packages. Unfortunately the
``fglrx`` driver didnt seem to recognise my ATI Mobility M56P card, and the open source driver
didnt want to give me GLX support. When I finally found some clues on what should I do, I had to
use my notebook for work, so I installed Fedora 14 on it. Then I realised that GNOME 3 is already
included in Rawhide (Fedora 15), so I quickly downloaded and installed that instead. Now I have
to keep this machine in a working state for a few days, so I will learn SELinux stuff in its
native environment.
When I installed Fedora 14, the first AVC message popped up after about ten minutes. That was a
good thing, as I wanted to see ``setroubleshoot`` in action. However, in Fedora 15, the AVC
bubbles didnt show up even after a day. I raised my left eyebrow and said thats impossible,
SELinux must be disabled. And its not! Its even in enforcing mode! And it works just fine. I
like it, and I hope I will be able to get the same results with Gentoo if I can get back to
testing…
