That's an odd problem. Normally, even if it fails to 'probe' your videocard, it will still use the 'vesa' driver to get you going with a nice GUI.
I think you'll find it quite a lot of work to get the Via FB drivers installed. Openchrome is probably a better option anyway, but instead of doing all that work, you could probably just make a small tweak to your xorg.conf
You'll need to fire up a command line text editor, you will probably have either pico or nano installed. Once you log in as root, you will be editing a file in your /etc/X11 directory. To do this, I'll use nano as my example:
nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf
If you have nano installed it will bring up that conf file. If you don't, it will probably say something like:
bash: nano: command not found
At this point, I'll assume you have it installed, if you do not, you'll need to consult a Fedora guide on getting a command line text editor installed (or using one that is installed).
So now that we have that file open, there is 1 line that needs to be changed. Using Nano you would type CTRL+w to find the Video Cards sections:
CTRL+w ( a little search screen opens up at the bottom of the file) then type:
Typically this will bring you to the Video Cards section, which may just be called "Device" but may also be called "VideoDevice"
You should see a line there starting with:
It might look like this:
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
The BusID may not be there, it's probably ok to leave it alone for now. you will need to get your cursor over the V on vga, and delete those letters and type in:
Keep the quotes around it.
Save the file:
Answer Y to overwrite.
Now you *might* be able to get into the gui, try with a:
And if you get errors, post them up.
Hopefully that will at least get you going on the right track.
