Hello, thanks for your reply, but I don't know how to try that neither,
still looking into it. Also this is a fresh install and almost all files
are default. /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc is auto-generated at install with some
xterms and an xclock, and /etc/X11/xorg.conf was non-existent (later
generated with nvidia-xconfig to try with nvidia-xrun). Another observation
is even when x fails to initialize or force closed by pkill, same thing
