See the manpage of Xorg. There are some suggestions, -logverbose is
something you may want.
It also helps to remove ~/.xinitrc and start X using xinit not startx.
Then run an app and see what happens. Another option is to startx from
another linux computer in your LAN and see X on the main computer and
see all output on the other one.

Good luck!
