Description of problem:
Installed Fedora FC2, chose custom installation and not workstation or
server. On reboot (or boot from a powered off state), the console
will go blank after the choice for interactive startup is shown.
Log in using ssh from another computer and firstboot is hung:
[root@sponge log]# ps -ef | grep firstboot
root 2240 1356 0 15:13 ? 00:00:00 /bin/bash
root 2247 2240 0 15:13 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh
root 2248 2247 0 15:13 ? 00:00:15 /usr/bin/python2
root 2353 2272 0 15:40 pts/1 00:00:00 grep firstboot
/var/log/messages is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed with SELinux
2. Thought SELinux might be the problem, reinstall without SELinux
Actual Results: Still no console - monitor even goes into power save
Expected Results: Graphical or text login on console.
