vesa mode gnome and i3 refuse to fully start up.

Could not get a usable screen with gnome and i3.

They both spit out some error message.

System uses vesa 1024 x 768, installed in a virtualbox machine.

Please also see my other tickets at 903 and 912.

My understanding is Gnome 3 is pretty dependent on 3d acceleration. Vesa unfortunately just won't cut it. If installed on native hardware that is supported there shouldn't be an issue. Also please bear in mind that Gnome 3 is currently marked as unsupported because it is still actively being ported into PC-BSD.

Thanks for your submission,
