xinit suffers from an upstream bug, which does not allow non-root X to be run without a display manager via startx or xinitrc. Several people have reported this on #guix.
Currently if one runs startx as non-root, X reports:
(EE) parse_vt_settings: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (Permission denied)
This bug is further discussed in . Redhat seems to have a patch , but it is unclear to me whether this has been applied upstream.
