Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately I am not able to send you requested files, as I have downgraded my mobile to F9.
If till the end of the next week no one can give you such logs I will have time to manage another upgrade.

I believe I have the same problem with rawhide (of 10/24). It boots correctly to mode 3 but won't start X. There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf on the system. My video card is Matrox MGA G550 and I've noticed during anaconda that it didn't look for the video card. Somehow it has build a system with a crippled X server.

I have a similar but worse problem with Fedora 10 live preview release on a notebook with intel 855 graphic card. When trying to start Xorg without an xorg.conf file I get a black screen and the system freeze. After that I can only power off the notebook. If I boot in runlevel 3 and then create an xorg.conf file specifying the "vesa" driver I can run the X server.

This is the working (with vesa) xorg.conf I created:

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105+inet"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "us"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	ModelName    "LCD Panel 1024x768"
	HorizSync    31.5 - 48.0
	VertRefresh  56.0 - 65.0
	Option	    "dpms"

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "vesa"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24

If I put under Driver "intel" Xorg freezes the whole system.

I updated F10 preview release (but couldn't restart with the new kernel see that I'm using a live image) but the problem remains. The system still freeze. But a doubt remains: could it be that the new hal and/or kernel solved the problem for Yovko Ilchev Yovkov? And not for me because I couldn't reboot with the upgrades? I managed to get via ssh the xorg.log after the freeze with "intel" driver. I posted it here (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470152) if you want to take a look. Or if it's more comfortable for you I can attach it here too.
