Use Xnest to run X11 sessions in a window
Authored by: Detrius on Feb 07, '04 10:01:26AM
Actually not every window manager supports the --display :1 argument. fvwm, for example, has the -d :1 argument to set the display number.

This is, however, a much simpler method of launching just a window manager in an Xnest server. The xinit method gives more options, as it executes an xinitrc script for you (if you want to use twm and launch several applications, for example).
