Description Artem S. Tashkinov 2012-04-27 23:31:30 UTC
Description of problem: I have set my X.org to start at vt7, however after playing with init 3, init 5 for a while now I have the three first virtual text consoles dead.

There's nothing running on them, I cannot activate them:

# ps ax | grep tt
12210 tty7     Ss+    0:16 /usr/bin/X -background none :0 vt07 -nolisten tcp
12287 tty4     Ss+    0:00 -bash
12318 tty5     Ss+    0:00 /sbin/agetty tty5 38400
12319 tty6     Ss+    0:00 /sbin/agetty tty6 38400

I can switch to vt1/vt2/vt3 but there's nothing there except a blinking cursor. Pressing any keys doesn't cause any reaction.

I have the following configuration:

* LXDM configured to start X.org at vt7
* NVIDIA binary drivers
* Vesa frame buffer activated via vga=0x346 on a kernel command line

We do not support display managers whose primary VT is not VT1. That is by design.
