The XServer tries to create a UNIX domain socket, which fails because
the cramfs filesystem is read-only.

Here it thinks that this is because there is already  such  a  socket
(which  might  be the case - depending on the contents of your cramfs
file system).

Find out which socket it tries to create (for example, run  it  under
strace),  and  then provide a symbolic link that points to a writable
