Description Alexander Todorov 2015-04-26 18:48:15 UTC
Description of problem:

While trying Fedora 22 Beta on a MacBook Air (from 2015) I did switch to tty2 inside stage2 and the display started to flicker. Both the text mode terminal on tty2 and the graphical screen were flickering in the same patterns. See this video here:

The computer has:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics (rev 09)

Please advise if this is something related to anaconda or Xorg (are we using Wayland instead) ? and what log files would you need.
