fatal server error : can't find a free VT

Post by Laszlo Hercz » Tue, 08 Jun 1993 18:50:21



  As the subject says: Xfree 1.2 says it cannot find a free VT.
 I am using my "old" Xconfig and my old X setup, only I changed the server
to Xfree 1.2.
 Configuration: Linux 0.99 p.6 with 8 VT's, libraries all taken from SLS
1.01.
 Is there something radically different between Xfree 1.0f+ and 1.2?
 Thanks!

Don't know anything about Xfree 1.0, but you need to take the getty
off one of your VTs, so X can claim it. Probably VT8 is the best
choice.

1. Fatal server error: no free VT in X312E

I've gotten XFree86312E from the Standard Places, and when I try
to do 'startx', I get

Fatal server error:
xf86OpenConsole: Cannot find a free VT

Anyone got any ideas?  I reduced the number of virtual terminals
in /etc/inittab to 1, and that didn't help.  Becoming root doesn't help.
Version 3.1.2 protocol version 11, rev 0, vendor release 6000.
