Need note on vt7 -> vt1 change for default X
Last modified: 2008-11-20 22:50:57 EST
After a default F10 graphical install, which should result in a runlevel 5 installation, X starts on vt1 instead of vt7. Text installs or systems that default to runlevel 3 where the user runs 'startx' will use vt7. I believe this is an artifact of Plymouth.
Thanks for filling this Paul. As this is inteded change, brief description of the reasoning (smooth boot, hide confusing text login) would be fine. Maybe some link that it is possible to return to old behaviour, for those feeling this change to be a big problem.

Is there a page that explains that already? If not, can someone help by filling in the details in a new page, such as:
Adam -- your reasoning seems to explain why we are switching to Plymouth, but not why we are switching the VT numbering scheme. From what I read on f-devel-l, it sounds as if there is disagreement that changing the VT numbering actually reduces flickers, etc. Is that true? If so, what is the actual reason for the renumbering?
I am just a user, that tries to push a note about this change into release notes. I have no detailed knowledge about reasoning...
