Does gnome-shell work without graphics capabilities? A few days back I
tried it from ubuntu karmic repository (so the release might be a bit
old), but it didn't work without graphics acceleration support.
Everything was just black and too slow (as if doing software
rendering). My gnome runs in a virtual machine and somehow hardware
support doesn't work through VM.

So, basically my question is do you have official plan to support
non-accelerated machines, or is it just a bug? I guess there are still
legitimate use of non-accelerated machines still valid.
