Help issues starting gnome and GDM after upgrade

I have an HP laptop with Dual ATI/Intel video card.  Everything was installed and working with Gnome 3.4.2.  I had to use the hybrid-video-ati-intel package from the AUR. 

I decided to give Gnome 3.6 and the new 10/6/12 installation media a try so I wiped everything.  I followed the Beginner Guide to get it reinstalled and accidentally loaded up Gnome 3.4.2 again instead of Gnome 3.6 from gnome-unstable.  But it worked and all I was able to see everything. 

I added the systemd kernel options, then the system would no longer boot.  After a bit of googling I found that I needed to run
"systemctl enable multi-user.target"

However Gnome and GDM will not start. 

Xorg.0.log

Any ideas?

Can you start xorg at all?

# pacman -S xorg-xinit
$ startx

Looks like the OP discovered a solution.

Possible he needed to

systemctl enable gdm.service
