I'm having problems installing the Cinnamon desktop environment on a Thinkpad x201 (Intel GMA, i5-540M)

I followed the guide here, using OpenRC, and first installing "X". With an .xinitrc:

Code:
exec cinnamon-session


When I made it through to the end and ran "startx" I got a crash with a "cannot find a screen" error, which I'm pretty sure resulted from not having the x11 drivers for intel. I emerged the intel driver, and tried again, but this time I get the "Cinnamon has crashed, this is the fallback, do you want to restart" and restarting crashes.

I edited my .xinitrc to be:

Code:
 exec cinnamon-session2d


and that seems to load 2D cinnamon desktop environment fine. I'd really like the 3D effects though, is there a likely place I went wrong? :?
