A Bash Script to Start X

This is just a simple script for the Bash shell to start the X Windowing System. The README file, man page, and source may be found tarred and gzipped in the file x-0.01.0.tar.gz. Modify as needed.

If no arguments are passed to it, or if the '-h' argument is passed to it, help information is printed. Otherwise it will start X in the background on the virtual terminal specified at the command line, with 16 bits per pixel. All output is piped to /root/x.log.


X was such an awful piece of software that I had to write a custom program to start it correctly.
