debian jessie w. Xorg - no screens found ?


I installed debian jessie from eelinux on BBB on SDcard:

[ debian-jessie-console-armhf-2013-09-26.tar.xz](

and run the /boot/uboot/tools/debian/ too install a lxde, but Xorg doesnt start:

"X.Org X Server 1.14.3" says in Xorg.0.log (long version see Attachment): 

 [   162.887] (II) modesetting(G0): using drv /dev/dri/card0
 [   162.888] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for modesetting
 [   162.888] (EE) No devices detected.
 [   162.888] (EE) 
 Fatal server error:
 [   162.888] (EE) no screens found(EE) 

On angstroem with "X.Org X Server 1.11.2" it works and EDID lines are listed.

Even configuring the xorg.conf with proper Modeline:

 Modeline "1280x1024"  135.00  1280 1296 1440 1688  1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync # (80.0 kHz)

doesnt change anything, since I think its es server error in general.

Any hints how to proceed debugging ?

does I have to compile a other driver, GL module ?

xorg.conf (1.38 KB)

Since Jessie isn't schedule for freeze till next year, I've only been
pushing them out for purely testing/development purposes. I've not
tried running any desktop on them at this point.

Right now, you should really be using Debian Wheezy for production purposes's..

Otherwise patches welcome, your the first to try Jessie desktop, so
you get the honor of figuring out how to make the xorg/modesetting
driver work...


I was wondering why the goes with slim of LXDM the default
for LXDE?

It's a small package (thinking of the 2GB eMMC partition) available in
both ubuntu/debian and was easy to get auto-login working... Other
than that, i didn't spend much time thinking about it..


Thanks for the answer, and the scipt.

OK, I thought so,
… so I will compile the new puredata packages for wheezy and try it there, anyway I need development-tools on the beagleboard.
