I upgrade my gnome 2 to gnome 3 but when my gnome start I will see this error :

Code:
Unfortunately Gnome3 failed to start properly and started in fall back mode .
This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full Gnome 3 experience .


This is my graphic hardware :
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8400M GS] (rev a1)


and the driver which is installed on my pc is : x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.71
and one thing when I run eselect openl list ,I will see this error :!!! Error: Can't load module openl
exiting

and when I run :
Code:
$ /usr/libexec/gnome-session-check-accelerated-helper
gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support.


I installed ubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386 with gnome desktop but it didn't report any error to me and It was full Gnome 3 !!!!

how can I use the full Gnome 3 ???

It's
Code:
eselect opengl list

Don't forget the "g" in opengl.

I suspect that not having your opengl set to nvidia might be the cause of your 3D acceleration problems, but just in case, make sure your user is part of the 'video' group.
