Unfortunately, error number 111 can be given for almost any cause. So it
isn't really helpful.  When you do XF86Setup, did you test the server?
Do you have the correct X server installed (XF86Setup uses VGA16, but
the majority of users will use the SVGA server).

Anyway, you might tell us your video card for a start and possibly post
your ~/.xsession-errors or make a log of the output from the "startx"

According to MegaHAL:
