I had the same problem long time ago.
In my case it was the font server: XF86Config was configured by default to
use a font server which wasn't properly installed. So check if you installed
xfs and then check if in the file /etc/X11/xfs/config the "no-listen"-line is
commented out! If you change anything of the xfs config you have to restart
(/etc/init.d/xfs reload).
