Start X on login to tty1
Start X session when you login to first virtual terminal. By default this should happen on the first freed terminal; tty7 if agetty is taking 1 to 6 as per /etc/inittab describes.
Add the following line in top of your
~/.bashrc- Autostart X on login to tty1
[[ $(tty) = "/dev/tty1" ]] && exec startx
# TERMINALS c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -a username 38400 tty1 linux
If you want start X straight from autologin in inittab, enter the code from the above .bashrc in ~/.bash_profile instead.
