Default Re: Fedora11 - Black/blank screen when starting X server

Please see:
http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia

You weren't supposed to use nvidia-xconfig to configure your hardware "before the first reboot" , this probably produced some mess with the ModulePath directive in xorg.conf

You should be able to revert back to an usable xorg.conf using rpmfusion with:
nvidia-config-display enable

But please remove hand installed drivers if you want to keep using drivers packaged by rpmfusion.

edit: looking at your log, showed that the problem is more likely with nouveau been loaded in the initrd image:
