Default Support For X vt option

Does the Nvidia driver for Linux support the X "vt" option?

I recently upgraded from AcceleratedX (yup, that old) - which provided the option without complaint - to Nvidia 1.0-4496. No matter what I do, it always ends up using VT 7.

Thanks in advance for the info

OK. Bad pilot error. In the process of modifying startx to call the default xserverrc script instead of directly invoke AcceleratedX, I inadvertently omitted passing the vt option down to the server script.

Now that that's done, I indeed can start the server on any specific virtual terminal. The bad news is that I can only run the server with one VT at a time.

... And so it goes.
