I'd try "3" instead of "single". That's the normal text mode
which should be enough to debug X.Org X11 problems while booting into a
more usable system than single-user mode.
Thanks, both of you, for trying to help. I've tried all the things suggested,
and had no success. In the end I gave in and installed OpenSUSE on this
laptop. Fedora has simply never been happy with it. I suspect it's the Intel
video that it doesn't like, but I've had endless problems since I bought it.
We'll see whether OpenSUSE handles it any better. Meanwhile, I still have
Fedora 13 on the other laptop which also gets regular use.
