X-window can be started by running "startx" after

However login as User, running "startx" only hung on
screen with following line displayed repeatedly;
xauth : timeout in locking authority file
Then pressing [Ctrl]+C can start X-window as User.
However Firefox can't be started on Xterm by running
If 'su' as root then Firefox can be started there.
On chroot environment:
I can't get X-window started by running either
"startx" OR "cd ~ && Xorg -configure", always

P.S. if necessary I can display the full printout of
"Fatal server error" as well as "/var/log/Xorg.0.log"
on next mail. They may take up space.
