Now, the problem was, that X crashed on startup (With a stack trace and
all, however I didn't have the complete output of the Xserver, as it
vanished upwards on the console). I first thought it was
the window-manager, so I started X without any other service running. It
crashed anyway repeatedly. This never happened before, so I supposed the
program got somehow corrupt while loading into memory. As I needed X at
the moment, I rebooted the machine. Then it worked without problems.
However, rebooting isn't the way to solve problems on a Linux machine, so
if it ever happens again, I'd like to check, if it's really a memory
issue. So far, I've not had any problems with RAM, kernel compiled without
SIG 11.
