Description Will Kemp 2008-03-27 07:08:18 EDT
Description of problem: Fedora 9 beta - Graphical Installation - first graphical
screen after running anaconda shows no text. It's white and almost completely
blank. There are small marks in the bottom RHS of the screen, which from
experience i figured were where there would be buttons, so i clicked on one and
a smaller window popped up, also blank. I rebooted and tried again, to make
sure, and the same thing happened.

Before the blank screen is displayed, X startup looks normal - with "X "cursor
working ok.

Switching virtual console with F1, etc, gives a blank black screen there. I can
switch back to the X console with F7 and it's still a blank white screen.

Lenovo Thinkpad R61, GM965/GL960 graphics controller (correctly identified by
anaconda).
