Description of problem:
Start a vnc install of rawhide on an IBM Power5 ppc system. Once you connect to the vnc session (from another rawhide system) ... the display is all black.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* Launcing vncviewer from a rawhide client displays an empty black window
* I expect to see the installer on the vncviewer window

I think this thread talks about this issue:
Indeed, this appears to be the same issue.

I've got the same error when booting a live image created with kernel-2.6.29-0.218.rc7.git2.fc11. Only the block and the cache entries differs.
Should be fixed in 0.235.rc7.git4.fc11.
Confirmed to work on live images with 0.237.rc7.git4.fc11
Confirmed as well.
