I meant that if rhgb is passed to the kernel, then tty7 should be the active tty on boot and be used for the graphical display and then after booting finished, X can be started on tty7 without a flicker. If X is not going to be started, I guess it does not hurt to either switch to tty1 or add another getty to tty7. Regards, Till
