If I put this in ~/.xinitrc
exec startkde > /dev/console 2>&1
to redirect messages to the console in order to read them in xconsole, X starts and immediately exits with the error:
/home/mark/.xinitrc: cannot create /dev/console: permission denied
I've uncommented this line in /etc/fbtab:
/dev/ttyv0 0600 /dev/console
Duh! Seems you have to reboot for the changes to /etc/fbtab to take effect. It's been that long since I set it up that I'd forgotten.
Sorry for the noise folks.
