Error starting second X session after Xorg upgrade
Until I upgraded Xorg a couple of weeks ago, I was able to use the command
startx -e /opt/kde3.5/bin/startkde -- :1
to start up a second KDE X session while KDE was running on the first X
display. Since the upgrade, X starts up but immediately fails with the error
xterm: bad command line option "xterm"
followed by an xterm usage message.
I presume the xterm in question is the one which is always displayed as the
console when I run a second KDE session, but I can't work out where it is
invoked. I'm running a home-compiled KDE 3.5.3. Any pointers to where xterm
is run from and where the error is occurring would be very welcome.
(I've tried and failed previously to set up kdmrc to allow a normal KDM login
on the second X display - that would be an acceptable alternative to getting
startx to work.)
