to start X without owning the console, see /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config

Personnally, on debian, I use that in /etc/inittab :

2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L -n -l /usr/local/sbin/autologin 38400 tty2

and autologin :
#!/bin/sh
exec su -l user -c startx -- vt4

Thanks to getty in inittab, the console is owned by the launcher, and
/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config do not nead to be touched.

to customise your xsession, just customise .xsession.
