114 If starting Xorg from the command line, the default instructions
115 above starts Xorg on the current virtual terminal. It may be
116 convenient to see Xorg and associated application messages on the
117 current virtual terminal, normally tty1, and start the graphical
118 environment on the first available unused virtual terminal, normally
119 tty7. To do this, set the suid bit on the Xorg application as the
120 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:
121 </para>
122
123<screen role="nodump"><userinput>chmod u+s $XORG_PREFIX/libexec/Xorg</userinput></screen>
124
125 <para>
126 At this point you can start Xorg on virtual terminal 7 with
127 <command>startx &lt;client arguments&gt; -- vt7</command>. Now
128 you can toggle between tty1 and tty7 with the Ctrl-Alt-F1 and
129 Ctrl-Alt-F7 key combinations.
130 </para>
131
132 <para>
133 To automatically start Xorg on the first available virtual terminal,
134 modify the <command>startx</command> script as the <systemitem
135 class="username">root</systemitem> user with:

137

141 After this change, the virtual terminal does not need to be
142 specified on the startx command line.
