Try the following:

Check your root mail for failed cron jobs.

Check /var/log/messages

init 3
startx >~/x.log 2>&1
Then in X ...
tail -f ~/x.log
and in another terminal
tail -f /var/log/messages

Might shed some light on the problem ...

IME the initial prelink on virgin FC2 systems takes an order of magnitude
longer than on FC1, but that might have a lot to do with the FC2
v.everything install having more packages (more to prelink). Could be
that; have you checked /var/log/prelink.log? Although that wouldn't tell
you if it segfaulted.
