blue line fedup theme during upgrade in a VM
Description of problem:
When I run fedup in a VM (qemu, spice, qxl), I see a blue line theme instead of the fedora icon + progress bar. The blue line theme doesn't indicate progress (maybe it does in some rough way, but it's really not visible).
When the fedup theme can't be started, please fall back to text output. Blue line theme is unusable, it looks like stuck.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F20 Beta TC2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F19 in a VM (qemu, spice, qxl)
2. run fedup and reboot to upgrade mode
3. see blue line theme with no progress indication, it looks like stuck
It's far more likely that your VM just doesn't have working KMS or fbdev. There doesn't seem to be a (working) modesetting driver in F20 for qxl.
Nevertheless, you should get text progress reporting so it doesn't look like things are stuck. This is now fixed in fedup-dracut:
fedup-0.8.0-3.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
fedup-dracut-0.8.0-2.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 20 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing fedup-dracut-0.8.0-2.fc20'
as soon as you are able to.

fedup-dracut-0.8.0-2.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
