Sequence of events:
Started with working F10 box using nVidia driver from rpmfusion
Mobo is an Asus P5k with a Q6600 processor and 4GB of ram
Had a number of other repos installed as well including livna, kde-redhat, kwizart, remi, and adobe
Ran preupgrade - all seemed to run well but when the machine came back up after the upgrade, there was no video
Suspecting the nVidia driver, I removed it; suspecting nouveau, I removed it; suspecting nv, I removed it - that removed all suspicion that this was a video problem since even the vesa driver wouldn't produce a display
Some message during this got me onto suspecting something amiss with KDE
Booting into X using GDM and Gnome worked!
Reinstalling nv worked, and subsequently, reinstalling nouveau also worked
Yum had multiple issues that I won't go into so ended up reconfiguring my smart channels and using smart to run an update this morning - that fixed KDE and now I'm up on KDE and nouveau - I'm going to run that way for awhile and see how nouveau does - I do run Cinelerra on this machine, so I'll have to see how that goes
