Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-session

In alpha-3 we used to have a warning "If you are using the live-CD images, and do not have the 3D drivers installed for your hardware, you may see a message like "Sorry you don't have 3D support, install it for your graphic hardware to get Unity or please reboot and select "Classic Session" at startup. "

This seems to have disappeared in beta-1. It should actually not be shown on a live system ([ -d /rofs ]), but presumably for normal installations _if_ there is a 3D driver available (-> ask jockey?)

IMHO this is served better by the already existing jockey notification, and the nvidia/fglrx drivers already point out that you need them for unity, but this might be a design requirement.
