Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 12.30

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-09-29 09:29:58 EDT
Yeah, I've seen this too.  If you then switch around to various other terminals - especially those that already have lots of text on them - and then switch back, it seems to fix itself.

Is this specific to ppc ... and only when connecting to the physical VGA port on a IBM Power system?
Comment 3 James Laska 2009-10-02 11:35:29 EDT
As discussed during F12Beta blocker review meeting, this issue is specific to ppc64 and it was agreed a reasonable workaround exists.  Removing this issue from the blocker bug and cc'ing Pavan, IBM PowerPc test contact, for additional guidance in resolving this issue post-beta.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.

ppc is unsupported as of F-12 EOL...
