If it's exactly the same problem, then re-read the the xorg instructions
in the SVN BLFS book...specifically the big note, just before the startx
command at the bottom of the page. If you already did this, then delete
any previous entries in /etc/sysconfig/createfiles that are for
/tmp/.ICE-unix and rerun those commands.
You must also be using lfs-bootscripts-2.1.2 or greater. LFS revision
date would have helped greatly here. To see, take a look at the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cleanfs script in an editor, and see if it starts with
the create_files() funtion. If you are using an older version of the
bootscripts, the syntax was different at some point for create_files.
I'd recomend grabbing the latest official release (2.2.3) and going with
