I had a problem like this, and didn't relly find how to resolved it but my X server start well now...
Wen I start it, I have this message: @hostname: unknow host at . If I dont start dhcpcd before launching XFree, it take a long time to start. But if I make my internet connexion first, it is ok. (But the message stay here...) I dont know if that can help you ...
