But the problem is that 'modeset' works with other machines and takes
advantage of a very useful kernel feature. Adding a blanket
'nomodeset' removes this feature - it allows Mac booting, but to the
detriment of all other hardware.
Ideally, there should be a way to detect whether it's needed and boot
accordingly. Hence the initrd notion (which would be complex, and I
don't know of it working on any other distro), or the simple addition
of a boot menu option.
I don't think it's a Fedora bug, this is something for the kernel
mailing list... ;-)
