The only thing that looks relevant there is the change in DRM version:
-(II) RADEON(0): [dri] Found DRI library version 1.3.0 and kernel module version

Dave, any idea?
I have the same problem with FC9 beta1 on my Sony VGN-TZ11 Notebook.
Installation went fine, but after X has started the screen was blank.
I also was not able to switch to the console (blank screen). X came
visible when i close the lid and open it again. A external monitor
works fine. This problem ist worse, since users are not apply to apply
any patches if they can't see anything ;-). Not all users have an external
monitor. I have updated the system with "yum update" and now the
system doesn't boot normally anymore, but i can start x from
the command line and it works. I was not able to switch to KDE.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
