    I have installed Fedora 15 x64 using Parallels Workstation Extreme on a Dell Mobile Workstation M6500. I have also Installed the Parallels Tools. Gnome 3 doesn't want to work in "Normal" Mode. It only runs in "Fallback" mode. Looking on-line it seems that Gnome3 revert to Fallback mode if it can not find openGL acceleration. glxinfo though confirm that openGL libraries are present:

    name of display: :0.0
    display: :0 screen: 0
    direct rendering: Yes
    server glx vendor string: SGI
    server glx version string: 1.4
    server glx extensions:
    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating,

    GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig,
    GLX_SGIX_pbuffer, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer, GLX_INTEL_swap_event
    client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI

    GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
    GLX version: 1.4
    GLX extensions:

    Any idea where the problem could be?

    Thank you in advance.
