It also seems that there's a "mixed metaphor" in that the first X session is F1 but the rest start at F7.Its only a mixed metaphor in that you are relying on keyboard shortcuts which encode specific virtual terminals to specific key mappings. This metaphor breaks down quickly once you start doing anything dynamic. Have 3 or 4 fast user switching users log in and logout in varying orders and even if the the X sessions were mapped to high ttys they would not be in a consistent ordering as users bounce on and off the system. Its quite analogous to how me moved from fixed block device naming to udev dynamic block device creation. Don't be shocked if we move into a future where the 5 or 6 mingetty's we start by default now are also started dynamically in the future and are given the next available tty instead of being on tty2-tt6 from boot up. -jefThat makes sense, I guess - this part of the question was relatively minor anyway. What I'd really like is to find a way to do all this without the Gnome session requirement.
Don,I don't recall fro the thread, but what Display Manager are you using. Does it make a difference if you are running kdm or gdm?
