Description of problem:
Exactly the same as bug #118860, I installed FC4T1 and X worked fine during the install but after booting for real, I get a blank screen. Adding vga=792 to the kernel command line fixes the problem. Subsequent devel updates have not fixed the problem.
Upstream bug is https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1109 and there is now (in the last update from Saturday) a supposed fix that is linked to in the bugzilla report.

Thanks for the report, and the upstream bug URL. I've CC'd myself to the
upstream bug, and added a comment there.
Once someone attaches the patch, it should be nominated for 6.8.x by
the submitter, or someone else by editing the patch properties. Once it
is committed to the stable branch of CVS, it will be included in 6.8.3,
and we can review it for inclusion in FC4.
Setting status to "UPSTREAM" for tracking.
