Don't know much about fedora BUT, the /deb/fb0: no such device error is
due to not loading ivtv-fb which will not load if ivtv is not loaded.

The reason you have this problem is probably because you are now running
a new kernel if that is so then all your modules need to be re-built.

it could be something more FC1 related in which case you should not
listen to me!
