Can I tell Xorg to not switch VTs?

I start several Xorg servers via SLiM via "systemd" on different virtual terminals (VT).

  • My video card driver doesn't support KMS, therefore the screen flashes. That is kind of tiresome.

  • Sometimes Zorg exits after boot with a message "xf86CloseConsole: VT_ACTIVATE failed: Input/output error". I guess it is because of races between several Xorgs starting simultaneously. It never exits if I start it manually by "systemctl start …".

So, I would rather switch VTs after boot by my script.

Xorg accepts a "vtXX" option, maybe you want to make use of that in your script. More info: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=150527
I'm not using slim, but it has an option as well: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SL … another_VT
