I am writting to know if there is a workaround to recover a functionality I had during my ARCH days and I miss a lot:

When I started my system, let's say I will be prompt to TTY1 and started the shell. There I will just do a startx and X will init on TTY1, letting all the other ones (including TTY7) as text only shells. If I went to TTY3 for example, I will have two X sessions: On TTY1 and TTY3.

Now, Gentoo (at least with OpenRC) defaults with the common setup of starting X on TTY7 regardless of where you summon startx, and "kidnapping" such console. Is in there any way of mimicing the default ARCH behaviour without switching to systemd?

Thank you in advance

startx -- vt1

You can get the TTY No. using the `tty` command, and extracting only the numerical part of that. The below command is probably not the best, but it works ...

startx -- vt`tty | grep -o [0-9]`

That did it! Thank you very much! :D. PS: At first I didn't notice you MUST put a space between the "--" and the vt. wonders of standarization
