Your error log at one point says:

  (EE) Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such device)

(EE) means error, as is explained at the start of the log. I don't know what
/dev/agpgart is for and if the fatal server error you get is due to the
non-existence of that device, but I presume this must be fixed anyhow. To my
knowledge, one cannot expect the X server to start after (EE) messages.
