Glad you got it sorted from that log I suspect that
Code: Select all
150.435] (EE) 0: /usr/libexec/Xorg (OsLookupColor+0x139) [0x59ea19]
[   150.436] (EE) 1: /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (__restore_rt+0x0) [0x7ff89f6615bf]

are components of xorg.x11-drv-qxl so that reinstall may have been the door opener the update of both your kernel and nouveau driver just increased your general security(usual kernel updates ) and may be a few bug fixes in the driver a check of the package info with yumex (yumGUI) should give you those indications if you have the right Yumex plug-ins installed :wink: Always wise to look are issues as learning opportunities.

Enjoy the Choice :)
