Comment 1 Michal Schmidt 2007-04-30 14:03:16 EDT
I'm seeing the same problem running Fedora 6.93 under FC6 host. Other 
paravirtualized guests (FC6, RHEL-5) work fine.
The X server fails with:
(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPUT_VSCREENINFO succeeded but modified mode
(EE) FBDEV(0): mode initialization failed
I'll attach the complete log.

This patch makes it work. I can now start X in paravirualized Fedora 6.93.
