Thank you, it's not in-depth technical analysis I wanted, just a
literal description of what was happening.
What you're describing (screen flashes three times and then changes to
text mode) is X trying to start and failing. This does probably
indicate the nvidia drivers aren't loading, by being in text mode
you're also seeing any other startup errors, including a different and
probably unrelated error from the iwl startup. You should be able to
login in text mode by pressing Ctl-Alt-F2 to get a login prompt (or
try F1 through to F8 if that doesn't work).
At this point there are a few things that would be useful:
1. output of the command
2. Contents of /var/log/X.0.log
3. output of
rpm -qa|grep nvidia
If you're not able to copy things off the system then just these instead:
lsmod |grep nv
lsmod |grep nouveau
grep EE /var/log/X.0.log
rpm -qa|grep nvidia
This is all I could get. Hope this helps and thanks for your patience.
