Everything was peachy until last night when I updated some packages with aptitude (logs pasted below). I've been using the xorg-edgers PPA for a long time with the latest nvidia drivers, so I figured there was something broken in there.
A git version of xserver_1.13 (2:220.127.116.113+git20120730.afa53fe7-0ubuntu0ricotz) can be downloaded from Xorg-edgers PPA for QQ.

I'm fairly new to Fedora and Linux in general, so apologies if this is a simple fix.
I have a thumb drive running Fedora 19, a PC with an Nvidia GTX 680, and a PC with Intel integrated graphics. I installed the Nvidia drivers, which now works fine on my first PC, but I'm having issues booting on the second.
