X freeze the system after upgrade


My Xorg completely freeze up the system after my recent upgrade. What can 
I do now?

First I thought it was gdm's problem, Then I started the system in text 
mode and using the 'startx' to start my default fluxbox. But the symptom 
is the same -- completely system freeze up. Can't be pinged and can't 
even move mouse or switch to virtual console.

The Xorg.0.log of gdm and fluxbox are almost identical:
