If you've been following updates to F14 alpha/beta, you'll undoubtedly
have been hit by:

which makes everything segfault and is unrecoverable without a live CD
and a lot of manual intervention.

A simple "does it boot" test in fact wouldn't have caught this, but a
"does it boot, then run prelink" (completely automatic as part of the
Koji build or AutoQA acceptance) would have.
