Hi Guix,

I wanted to try using startx instead of a display manager.  I finally
got it to work, but it required at very least these patches.  I also had
to create a new service type but I think that it needs more work to be
put in upstream.

Is startx something we want to support?  It seems like the user should
be able to construct a system as the they see fit.

What do you think?

- John

Hello, I have added a 'xorg-server-service-type' for this usage.

It can be used with 'sx' (as a normal user), or 'xinit'.

For 'xinit', you need to create a '~/.xserverrc` file with:

  tty=$(tty)
  tty=${tty#/dev/tty}
  X vt${tty}

To use X in PATH and the current tty for rootless X server.


Do thoes patches still needed now?
Thank you!

     Hello!  

  
Are the patches merged? I’m not sure I see the service in master.    If they are, these patches may not be required.   
  

  
Thanks!

Yes, it's 'xorg-server-service-type' which will put a configured (by
xorg-configuration) X under /run/current-system/profile/bin.

With it, use 'sx' or 'xinit' as a normal user should works.

I haven't document it in the manual though...
