[Solved] Close virtual X session?

I can start a virtual X session with

startx -- :1 &

Then I'm able to switch to tty8. When I'm done I want to close these X session on tty8.

Is there any console command to do this?

If you launched it from a term from :0, just go back to :0 and ctrl-c - X will properly shutdown.

That works theoretically. But I run the startx command in the background, because it's a part of a script.

I'm running X on tty4 and it's the only process listed to run there:

[karol@black ~]$ pidof X
18850
[karol@black ~]$ pgrep -t tty4
18850

Have you tried killing it with pkill?
