Re: Is it possible to start X Windows in multiple V/C .

Are you really, really sure you did not forget the space after those two 
slashes. I use the command almost every day and it works just fine. However, 
if if type

startx --:1
        ^^^-- note, no space after the second slash

I get the same error as you about X already being active for display 0.

The two slashes mean that there are no more arguments to the startx script 
and all the following arguments should be passed to the X server. In this 
case the X server is started as

X :1

and it starts on VC8.
