Xorg log for the problem.
Description of problem:
After applying the night's updates (41 or 61 updates, I can't remember), the X doesn't starts anymore. There's no "EE" in the X.n.log and the screen keeps "flickering", suggesting that X is trying to start. It seems that the other consoles are not active, because I cannot open them by using ctrl+alt+fn. So, I have to issue a "ctrl+alt+del" to reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide, updated from "everything updated at 10pm UTC Oct 1st" to "everything updated at 8:30am UTC Oct 2nd".
Hardware: Lenovo T61
Always, when X tries to start.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply the updates
Screen keeps flickering, suggesting that X is trying to start.
X starts fine, as it did before the update.
Even trying to boot from older kernels (tried 370) the problem happens. So, I don't think this is a kernel problem, but this may be somewhat related to #464775 .

It had 'Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0' before, but the same problems happens with both configurations.

:2.log file, from /var/log/gdm
This one seems to have more information. Suspicions line at the bottom of the file:
/usr/bin/Xorg: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//intel_drv.so: undefined symbol: intel_bufmgr_gem_init
Downgrading from xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-8.fc10.i386 to xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-2.fc9.i386 is a workaround.
But doing that, the problem reported on bug 464775 starts to happen.
Try the new package, but add nomodeset on the kernel command line http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/10/Beta/ReleaseNotes#Boot_up Does it help?
"nomodeset" in the latest kernel, with the latest packages (including xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-8.fc10.i386) doesn't helps. The same symptoms happens, including the message "/usr/bin/Xorg: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//intel_drv.so: undefined symbol: intel_bufmgr_gem_init" at the end of the logs in /var/log/gdm/:n.log
