Can you post /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the failed startup please.
Comment 2 Dave P 2010-07-02 02:44:59 EDT

Bit big for direct post!

Resolved (got me back on line)
by swapping out the Nvidia 9500 for an ATI 4770.

Just a thought. No way I could have posted that file
using a CLI interface to Fedora?

Comment 3 Ben Skeggs 2010-07-02 02:53:51 EDT
I need a log from nouveau failing, not ATI working...
Comment 4 Dave P 2010-07-02 03:31:52 EDT
You asked for the file, I gave it to you.
Its content is quite incomprehensible to me.

I have

  -rw-r--r--   1 root    root     149695 Jul  2 07:21 Xorg.0.log
  -rw-r--r--   1 root    root     189085 Jul  1 17:49 Xorg.0.log.old
  -rw-r--r--.  1 root    root      42521 May 27 16:10 Xorg.9.log

July 1 seems also to focus on ATI kit.
May 27 relates to the system, working, with the Nvidia card.

Log appears to  be undated, hence nothing I can see which
relates to 29 Jun, 30 June, when I experienced the problem.

Bad logging Ben? 

Sorry, cant give you want you want,
