I would like to run two local X-servers on the same desktop box, like
maybe one on :0 and the other on :1. How do I do that?
Currently i run xdm from /etc/ttys like this:
# grep xdm\ /etc/ttys
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/xdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure
# grep -v ^# /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers
:0 Digital-QV local /usr/local/bin/X -ac -nolisten tcp :0
When I add another line to /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers like
:1 Digital-QV local /usr/local/bin/X -ac -nolisten tcp :1
nothing good happens. I cannot switch into another X-server with
Alt+Fn or any other key combination. I think another X-server is
not even started.
Is there a good recipe?
Thank you in advance for any input.
