The error was 1249. That's why I usually ceate a separate /var partition and a /tmp symlink of /var/tmp (so /tmp and /var/lib are on the same partition). but now i get this Code: Fatal server error: Cannot move old log file ("/var/log/Xorg.0.log" to "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old" Make sure the permissions of Xorg.0.log, Xorg.0.log.old, Xorg.1.log, and Xorg.1.log.old are all the same.

(They should probably be "-rw-r--r--", owned by the root user and the group "users".)
If you still get an error regarding Xorg.0.log.old, something is obviously very wrong because everyone has read-write access and therefore your X installation is totally screwed up (or your entire system).
