startx or xinit ? what difference ?
Hey ! how are you BSD Hackers ?
Just a question about the difference beween x launching command 'startx' and the other equivalent -if true- 'xinit'
when sometimes startx fails and ends in some bad window or blackens screen I kill X then type : xinit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc (under OpenBSD/NetBSD)
why does the first fail while the second succeeds ?
is the xinit a correct way of starting x ? I am starting to drop 'startx' on behalf of 'xinit' ..
sorry .. such annoying noob's questions .. but we are here to learn from you ..
