The xorg-x11-6.8.1-10 and xorg-x11-6.8.1-11 builds have a crasher bug 
that prevents the X server from starting.  The problem is not related to 
neither the kernel or rhgb, and it doesn't depend on what type of 
graphics hardware you have.  I'm building xorg-x11-6.8.1-12 which will 
fix the problem, in the meantime, it's probably best to stick with 

The issue is already in bugzilla:


To disable rhgb and boot into runlevel 3 (textmode), press 'e' in grub 
to edit the boot script, select the kernel line and press 'e' again. 
Then delete the 'rhgb' part and append '3' at the end of the line.
