I dunno if the modprobe error is the reason. Probably not...
Does system-config-soundcard play the test sound ?

Xorg is not very good in writing good error messages... I still try to track
that nasty mozilla-crashes-X bug.
Most of the time I get:
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

Nothing else...

Do you have the line
  Load  "dri"
in xorg.conf ? I just commented it for test purposes and had a hard hang after
crashing Mozilla manually. With that line X just crashes and the login screen
comes up again...
