Hi, could you please test :
* was pushed to the Fedora 19 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing xorg-x11-server-1.14.2-4.fc19'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:

Also had a black screen when updating to F19 with fedup, from F18.
Although i did not have the same error message, updating xorg-x11-server from updates-testing as described fixed it too. Thanks !
I got this problem a week ago. The workaround I applied was to downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg from 1.14.2-3 to 1.14.1-4.
Do this is considered as a solution?

and with xorg-x11-server-Xorg 1.14.2-4 from updates-testing ?
Had the same problem. Last update (xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.14.2-4.fc19.x86_64) fixes the problem.
Thank you. :-)
