When I'm executing xinit to start another X server (Let's assume for testing purposes I want to display man ls) my command looks like this
xinit -e man ls -- :1 -ac
Alright so far. Another X process starts up and displays man ls. However, when I return to the terminal where I started xinit from, I can see a hell of newlines.
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(II) Module already built-in
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
Followed by even more of them. Oh joy. I can't use bash to redirect them, since xinit prints directly to the terminal.
So the only way to stop is would be to kill it at the source. xinit executes X, which in turn is responsible for spamming. Any ideas what could be the matter here?
