After latest rawhide update, xorg no longer starts up. From the log:

Fatal server error:

Also, yum emitted an error (something about -e compilation error or
something along these lines) when it updated xorg-x11-xfs.

My system is an Athlon 64 3200+, motherboard is an Asus A8N-VM (NForce 410
with integrated GeForce 6100).

Also, here's a snip from /var/log/messages:
