Try switching to VT4 at the beginning of base installation. That should at 
least give us where it is failing and maybe why.

Also try activating the web server of the installer before base 
installation ("save debug logs" option). Maybe that will allow you to get 
the info after the hang.

It's almost certain to be an arch specific issue, so the powerpc porters 
are the best people to help solve it once you have identified the issue.
