(Answer) (Category) Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : (Category) X Windows :
My mac crashed, and now X won't start!
It tells me that it can't get a connection to the server.
Also, when I trun Xmklinux alone I get a segmentation fault.

Fix: Remove the /tmp/.X11-unix directory.

Another reason could be that xfs is not working. Xfs has a tendacy to leave lock files around and such so it might not start up if your box crashes. But don't worry, xfs isn't needed! All you have to do is delete the FontPath line of your /etc/X11/XF86Config.
