Re: [SLE] Can not switch to other terminal in SuSE7.3

Hello Alex,

Please forgiveme.
THIS is my DUMMY month. :-P

Is not a configuration trouble, it's a root troublue. The settings are all OK. I just forget to tell where to start. Now I do:

user@earth~> startx -- :0 -depth 24
user@earth~> startx /usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2 -- :1 -depth 8

and everything is OK.

Thesis + Teaching Duties + Root = Chaos

Not in that order, of course.

And now a second question. When you call 'startx', the X server starts and a ".X.err" is created in your home directory (we are all using home directories via NFS). If you type:

user@earth~> ps -ef
...
user 3798 2010 0 10:08 tty1 00:00:00 -bash
user 3868 3798 0 10:09 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/X11R6/bin/startx -- :0 -depth 24
user 3869 3798 0 10:09 tty1 00:00:00 tee /home/user/.X.err
user 3881 3868 0 10:09 tty1 00:00:00 xinit /home/user/.xinitrc -- /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xserverrc :0 -depth 24 -auth ...
root 3882 3881 2 10:09 ? 00:00:40 X :0 -depth 24 -auth /home/user/.Xauthority
user 3892 3881 0 10:09 tty1 00:00:00 /bin/bash --login /usr/X11R6/bin/kde
...

The console errors of the X server are logged to ".X.err"
When the second "startx" is called, its output overwrites the ".X.err" of the first. I was looking trough the scripts where the "tee /home/user/.X.err" is created, to simply add to the name of the file the console, just to have two error logs, but I didn't find any clue.

Do you any suggestion?

By the way, I've provide my users with a script "2startx" that is:

startx -- :0 -depth 24
sleep 30
startx /usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2 -- :1 -depth 8

Thanks once again
