Diagnostic information

Description of problem:
I have integrated Nvidia 6150SE GPU and it seems that there is only a blank screen after xorg is started. However i was able to use drakconf to set the display driver to vesa and got live system running. This trick doesn\'t seem to work with install mode, installer just restarts the pc if i do ctrl+alt+del (required to restart xorg with new config). 

Passing xdriver=vesa doesn\'t work - the faulty nvidia driver is always used. Removing nomodeset doesn\'t do anything - just the same.

I got it installed on a laptop with ATI GPU though, but would need to get it working with nvidia. Is there a way to get it working? 

This all occurs on 64bit system, with rosa marathon 2012 extended edition and i was able to check the logs and there isn\'t any major errors/warnings which\'d indicate a problem with xorg or with anything else. 

Does the nvidia driver work properly if i get the system installed and install dkms-nvidia drivers from rpms? Has it been working with 3.x kernels?

I have attached some diagnostic information: lspcidrake, dmesg and Xorg.o.log original and with vesa driver.
