many X drivers broken in Xorg 1.6.99

Since the recent X upgrade in FC12, I can't run the nouveau or nv drivers. I haven't tried the nvidia driver yet.

The symptoms are that the screen just goes black, and the keyboard doesn't respond. There's no mouse pointer. ctrl-alt-bkspc and ctrl-alt-del do nothing. The kernel hasn't crashed because the soft-power button shuts the machine down cleanly.

Running X from the command line (i.e. just the server, no desktop or other clients) has the same problem. Even X -probeonly crashes in the same way. If I run X -showopts, these failed drivers display the following error:

        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
        (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,

X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so: undefined symbol: LoaderRefSymLists
The only driver that seems to work is the vesa driver.

Also with this version of X, my keyboard keeps beeping i.e. many keys cause the internal PC speaker to beep. This doesn't happen from the console.

Anyone else see these sorts of issues?

broken, drivers, xorg
