i done some testing and this is the result

1. exit from X and start xdm
2. from xdm login as user
3. run xine........and it is running ok!!!!

so..this means xine cannot running when you start X using startx??? anybody can explain this..

as i read it , you should insert that " xaa....." option in the " device"-section of xorg.conf.
that is the part where you set your video-card and driver.

maybe try that.
