I'm trying to run Fedora on a IBM server 9117-MMA, for that i'm using fedora 21 ppc64.

When i try to install the fedora i get the installing screen all messed up, and half of the options don't show on the screen. Tried to add the parameters ins.resolution or resolution to the boot, but none of those had any effect.

Installed fedora by using tab and enter to move thought it, since its a farly easy process, and from what i saw on the http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Installation_Guide/sect-installation-gui-installation-destination.html , there's i didn't skipped anything. After that when fedora runs i'm only able to see the terminal. I don't see the initial setup or the gnome initial setup ( http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Installation_Guide/chap-after-installation.html )

I tried this page for solved the these problems ( http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Installation_Guide/sect-troubleshooting-problems-beginning-installation.html ) But no effect.

Tryed to use yum update and install gnome, but no effect. Proceed to do this : http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Installation_Guide/sect-trouble-after-graphical-boot.html and this: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/21/html/Installation_Guide/sect-trouble-after-graphical-login.html None of those worked, when i tried startx with gnome installed i get error that it seens to be referring to the video driver, and that it couldn't be found.

I just don't how to proceed beyond this point.
