I know this general topic has been brought up in other places but I have another question that I haven't found an answer to so I wanted to start a new topic. I am using an older computer and when I installed Linux Mint 12 the overview is unavailable. From consulting the forum, it appears this is because I have too old of a "graphics card" (integrated in CPU). Anyways, I have two questions that I'm hoping someone could help with.
1. Would anyone be able to tell me if the following hardware is unable to support "Overview" and will result in me being booted to Fallback mode.
VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Processor : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.40GHz
Memory : 993MB (308MB used)
Resolution : 1440x900 pixels
OpenGL Renderer: Software Rasterizer
~ $ inxi -Gxc 0
Graphics: Card: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter bus-ID: 01:00.0
X.Org 1.10.4 drivers sis unloaded: fbdev,vesa Resolution firstname.lastname@example.org
GLX Renderer Rasterizer GLX Version 2.1 Mesa 7.11 Direct Rendering Yes
Hope this is enough information on the system. Additionally, just in case it matters, I am dual-booting with Archbang and have its bootloader on the HD and Mint's on a partition.
2. If I don't have support for the "Overview" and therefore anything but Fallback mode, does anyone know what I could do to uninstall the Gnome 3 and Cinnamon that I was trying? I just would like to clear up as much space as possible if I have no use for the packages.
Thanks in advance!
