Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

  I booted the Ubuntu Desktop i386 Alpha2 Live Session on a IBM Thinkpad T23. When it reached GNOME, it said that this computer could not run Unity. I chose to run the classic system. However, when it loaded, it didn't load the panels. Everything else seemed to work, but I could not be certain without the panels. Below is the information obtained by lshw on this computer's hardware.

Your system does not have the required capabilities to support unity. You can use unity-2d or the classic desktop session. For further info about unity requirements see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopExperienceTeam/UnityHardwareRequirements
