After I demo'd the install procedure (but not really executed it) to a friend, I went back into OS-X. Clicked the X-icon and switched to X. But the keyboard input was not accepted. The mouse worked, but not the keyboard.
It seems that after you have booted into Darwin (via ">console") you need to run "startx" before you exit and log in into OS-X again. After I did this, it worked fine.


And oh yes, the second time the work around worked.
