Unless anyone knows different, it seems that at least a little progress has
been made on this. A few posts ago I mentioned that I can now boot into a
desktop - but only if I log in as root. Anyway, with that in mind I logged
in as root, opened a terminal window and typed:-
glxinfo|grep direct\ rendering
which produced "Direct rendering: Yes". Previously, this would have
produced "No" so it looks like hardware acceleration is at least working.
I thought I'd be clever and log in as root, then logout and log in again as
myself. Unfortunately, that doesn't solve the problem. I still get the
message box telling me that a panel is already running and I get dumped to
the blank screen again.
I can't help thinking that this must be a simple config problem. Is there a
log file I could look at to find out why the desktop hasn't started? Or why
it thinks there's a panel already running when (visually at least) there
