F17 hangs up after update to 3.7.6-102

I updated the kernel 2 weeks ago, and now when I boot the new kernel 3.7.6-102, it hangs up on the line. "Started Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD stack."

I'm still booting on the old kernel, but with the new upgrade coming for F18. I don't want this problem to follow the upgrade. I don't think it will go away by itself.

I have checked my xorg.conf file and it has not changed from the time I removed the other video driver and went back to vesa. After F17 booted, the screen would become distorted, so I changed back.

I believe that both kernels use the same xorg.conf file anyways. Why I typed that, I don't know. Any ideas how I can get by this problem.

I just erased kernel 3.7.6 and updated to 3.7.9 and it does the same thing. I think its something in the new kernels. Now it stops at the Starting Login page.
