dmesg for first failed boot after updates

I am guessing at the source of the problem as I allowed several packages to update from the applet, rebooted, and the process stops with black screen, unresponsive keyboard, must use reset.  I tried adding nokmsboot to the kernel commandline but no difference that I can see.

In a chroot, I can collect some information:

[root@localhost /]# cat /etc/rosa-release 
ROSA Desktop Fresh R1 release 2012.1 for x86_64

[root@localhost /]# rpm -qa --last|head

There was an rpm.new file that came with one of these packages, something about sleep or suspend, that looked pretty innocuous, so I installed that.  The kernel-nrjQL-desktop-3.11.9-69rosa-1-1-rosa2012.1.x86_64 has been running fine since Saturday.  I'll attach /var/log/dmesg.old, without nokmsboot.
Comment 1 Rolf Pedersen 2013-12-04 06:58:10 MSK
It appears my mistake was to reboot before installing the rest of the updates.  From recovery mode (this should be available by default, imo), I removed the *nvidia* packages that are not needed since my recent switch to an ati card and ran 
urpmi --auto-update
for 150 + more packages.  Now., boot to desktop is successful and

$ cat /etc/rosa-release 
ROSA Desktop Fresh R2 release 2012.1 for x86_64

Guess I missed the memo on that. ;)
