Exclamation no X-window after update!!!!!!!!!!!

I noticed that the computer ran ldconfig automatically during startup and tried to install an ATI driver for video. That is a big problem since my video is not compatable with ATI, Nvidia nor Intel chipsets. I booted to a terminal and edited my xorg.conf file back to a vesa driver and when I rebooted it reran ldconfig and reinstalled the ATI driver again. So I need to re-edit my xorg.conf file again. How do I stop ldconfig from being reran when I boot up?????????

I found the answer. First edit xorg.conf from a terminal logged in as root. Second yum erase xorg-x11-drv-fglrx*. Third reboot.
