Re: [PLUG] X on Ubuntu 8.10

Seems like on my Ubuntu, tty7 is where init runs and tty8 is where X runs.  Is
this a change, or is there something wrong with my system?

Something is wrong with your system. The only distro as far as I know to mess with what tty X runs on is Fedora 10 who put it on tty1 to give a flickerless boot process. Every Ubuntu I've ever used (6.06 - 9.04) has had X on tty7. I think there are some errors that can cause X to start on a tty other than 7, but I forget what they are; ask Google.
