What you need to do is specify the terminal behind it then.
And that will solve it.

I would like to use the Virtual Terminal mode of my Laptop. 'gdm' is
used to launch the Xserver. I noted that in 'gdm.conf' file has the
following under the servers section:
I removed the comment to enable the 'display :1' but found that this
was not the desired effect. (it destroyed the server on VT=7,solid color,
and made the servo on VT=8 unusable)
To run two Virtual Terminals, I need to launch two servers correct?
I can indeed launch another server via 'xinit' to run on VT=8 but
this disables permissions Xauth permissions in the VT=7 display, not
a solution (gnome becomes unusable)
Any ideas how I properly set this up through gdm?
