Thanks for looking, Marko - I deleted the Xorg.0.conf file this morning
and restarted the machine in runlevel 3 as you originally proposed. I
then logged in as the new 'test' user and got the same result. I have
created a .pdf of the Xorg.0.log, the dmesg log,m and a truncated
messages log (I deleted everything before the reboot) - this is still
way too long to post here. If you or anyone else has the time to look,
here's a link to it:
I've looked through the logs. Nothing suspicious that I can see.
The problem with the nouveau bug theory is that this all started while I
was still running the rpmfusion version of the proprietary nVidia
driver; I reverted to nouveau thinking the nVidia driver was the
culprit, but got the exact same behavior with nouveau; I forgot to
investigate your chron job theory, but, keep in mind, this was running
one moment, for many months, and stopped the next (I'll still check this
out when I get home) - dexter suggested re-installing xorg and mesa -
does this make sense?
I don't know. X doesn't seem to complain about any error whatsoever,
everything appears to be in order from its point of view. I am not sure
reinstalling xorg or mesa will do any good.
OTOH, you might try to boot a Fedora Live CD, just to be sure that hardware is
still ok, run a memtest, etc. In general I hate to suggest a reinstall of the
whole OS, but since there is no obvious way to understand the problem you
have, maybe a reinstall would be a quick way out of problems. Just be sure to
backup all your data.
Maybe someone else has a fresh idea what might be going wrong?
