I get exactly the same error message when I try to start X while already 
having X running. My guess is therefore that you have already started x 
successfully, but you do not know it. Try starting xterm instead and see 
if it works.

You may have to set a DISPLAY variable for that to work. I think the 
script startxwin is closer to what you want, but I am not the expert.
