You ROCK Erik!
Not _only_ are you getting a Christmas card this year *BUT* fruitcake
too! Works beautifully!
I created ~/.xinitrc
add --> exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --exit-with-session startkde
Log in as "myself"
~$ startx -- :1 &
"Automagically" jumps to vt8 and KDE "automagically" starts (no login)
Log out of vt8 session and all processes end
(check: vt7 still running)
tty1 reports: + Done startx -- :1
Now if I decide I don't want an _entire_ KDE system running x2 I can
just comment out the line in ~/.xinitrc and use basic X. Very cool!
Big _thanks_ to everyone who helped me with this!
