I want to use
i3, which is available in Mac Ports. I've installed it and
ports install xorg). Now I want to boot into that. I've tried created an
~/.xinitrc and an
~/.xinitrc.d/99_i3 script (both had
+x). But in neither occasion did X start up with the script. Is it possible to use
Xorg on boot and jump into
i3 instead of the normal OSX Window Manager?
You can find a very similar question on SuperUser here.
Just to be clear, I don't want any OSX functionality. I'm only not reformatting and installing GNU Linux because my company prohibits it. I want to bootstrap a parallel configuration with ports and boot into an i3 environment (ideally with no dock, Aqua, Finder).
