If I'm not mistaken, ivtvfb.ko is missing from the atrpms video4lan rpm.

Run this command as root. If you get no output, the the framebuffer is
not installed.

find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name ivtvfb.ko

If the framebuffer is there, you may be loading it incorrectly. What
does your /etc/modprobe.conf look like?
