    Re: How-to run Multiple (Virtual) X sessions

    Very helpful. thanks!

    Now I hope one step further in virtual X to run windows manager from a different partition.

    I have two partition one for booting system, the other for new version ubuntu. I need new version gnome/kde session can be show at booting system's virtual X.

    Because X must be started by root, startkde need to be started by normal user. I have tried this.

    DISPLAY=:1.0
    X :1&
    sudo chroot /media/sda3 su username -c "/usr/bin/startkde"

    It works but when switching back and forth again, system stop there no response.

    Start a thread in general help and be sure to include a description of the problem and any error messages you are getting.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
