Description of problem:
The graphics for cyberblade/i1 (Via C3) and some cirrus chips does not work on fc4 as has been reported since fc4t1. I bring this to the attention of kernel since it has not been addressed in X (bugs have been filed and commented) and it maybe a kernel shared memory problem (or not). My post on this issue was for what ever reason was sensored on test-list. I really tried to bring attention to this issue before fc4 release. After a text install startx results in white screen. Dropping to a terminal the text screen is corrupt with a blue character wide blue border.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert fc4 install disk
2.Graphical install results in white screen
3.After text install gdm? is white screen
Actual Results: Anything except a white screen or corrupt text screen is not possible.
Expected Results: A normal fc4 install
