it's expected to work. If it doesn't, file a bug
Can you try booting to runlevel 3, logging in and running 'startx' - it'll probably hang - then reboot back to runlevel 3 again and take a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, then attach that when filing a bug report?
"I can't used vesa or nv drv as the nouveau seems to own all 3 now?"
No, that's not right. Both the nv and vesa drivers are still available. Just make sure the packages are installed and create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf and set Driver to "nv" or "vesa".
The boot.iso anaconda for Apr 16th is total trash. Many bugs.
No checksum, python errors, needed alternate video, it would not handle old LVM.
Starting new MB size error about length not > 0.
I used the snap1, and no luck starting.
Iused Beta with rawhide updates.
It crashed at end with python eject error but completed.
Try rhgb xdriver=vesa nomodeset.
Reveled failed HAL and hung on gen SSHA1 RSA key, that failed after a bit.
And the FirstBoot came up but
there was no keyboard or mouse.
There is no way to get the xorg.conf on the disk, but that will not work without HAL and I can't use sftp with out a host key.
On another computer it is running in VBox fine with the latest koji updated and uses vesa drv via an xorg.conf with Monitor and screen sections.
I'm typing this from there right now and it has been running for hours at a time.
