With current (20080826) rawhide, firstboot's X server dies after being unable to find the 'fixed' font.

Booting with 'enforcing=0' makes X start properly.

X log is attached. Interesting lines:

(==) No FontPath specified.  Using compiled-in default.
(==) FontPath set to:
(WW) avc:  denied  { grab } for request=X11:GrabServer comm=/usr/bin/python2 scontext=system_u:system_r:firstboot_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:firstboot_t:s0 tclass=x_server
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
