programs not running under another console...

So, I installed openSuse 11.3, and configured my inittab like:

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --noclear tty1
2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
3:5:respawn:/usr/bin/startx – :3 tty3
4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4
5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5
6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6

under the console 7 (ctrl+alt+f7), I have a virtual win xp, and I run some music and apps in it…
but, when I switch to any another console, it just shuts up…
also, when I log in as a root under console 2 and go back to console 7, sound card also shuts up…

what I’ve been missing?

khm, additional…

I started xwin under terminal/console 2, and I found that programs that run under console 7 (there’s a virtual box with win xp under it) stopped working.
Does it means that I could have ‘active’ only one x win?

It should be important to say how. Vmware perhaps?
