Second X Server behaving (at least to me) strangely
I've recently installed RHEL 4.0 on an IBM T40. After I boot up, I open a gnome-termanal and type 'echo $DISPLAY' to which the system responds ':0.0' This seems reasonable. Then I start a new X server on '1.0' by issuing 'X :1.0 &' and a new X Session starts, so far so good. Then I return to the original server with Ctrl-Alt-F7 and start an xclock on '1.0' with 'xclock -display :1.0 &' I then entered Ctrl-Alt-F8 expecting to find my new display but it wasn't there. I discovered eventually that it was at 'Ctrl-Alt-F9' Does this make sense? What determines on which virtual terminals the server are started - I thought they were assigned sequentially starting with F7. If anyone could set me straight on this issue, I'd really appreciate it.
