running 2 X sessions
At tty0, I am already running X which is active on "Alt-F7". Now when I login into tty1 as a different user and run startx it says this:

Fatal Server Error: Server is already active for display 0.

I am downloading something on my X session and at the same time my father want to use X at his login. Is it possible to run 2 startx(s) as different users ?

You can run

startx -- :1
to start a new X session

xinit -- :1
