First, modify startx, hence the X session starts on the first unused virtual terminal, which normally is vt7:
sed -e '/$serverargs $vtarg/ s/serverargs/: #&/' \ -i startx.cpp
If you have already installed this package without the sed above,
there is no need to reinstall. Just modify the installed
startx, issuing, as
root user: sed -i '/$serverargs $vtarg/ s/serverargs/:
Install xinit by running the following commands:
./configure $XORG_CONFIG --with-xinitdir=/etc/X11/app-defaults && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
make install && ldconfig
