: yeah, probably. I admit I don't know enough about X to tell exactly why/when you would ever want to use xinit directly, but there were multiple people on the forums who ran into permission problems because they didn't get a logind session with xinit. And I never heard anyone complain about startx, so I guess it's safe to just not mention xinit at all. [[User:65kid|65kid]] ([[User talk:65kid|talk]]) 20:06, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Minimum supported kernel version

Hi, I've started a discussion about one of your recent edits in ArchWiki_talk:Reports#Minimum_supported_kernel_version, you may be interested in participating :) -- Kynikos (talk) 11:00, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

xinit shouldn't be used, the session isn't set up properly with it

I've noticed your edit wrt xinit. If I understand it correctly, Xinitrc needs some cleanup, because it says It's time to run X. To run X as a non-root user, issue:

$ startx
$ xinit
$ xinit -- :1

Xfce, Openbox, KDE and some other articles also suggest using either startx or xinit. -- Karol (talk) 19:56, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
