Well I managed to get my USB keyboard, mouse and HDMI video working.

However it looks as though the console image I built using the wiki instructions does not include (XWindows?) GUI support.

I get the splash page, but no GUI.


Since my finished product will not have a GUI or Kbd or mouse, I wonder if there is any point in continuing along this path ??

I am correct that I would need a different build in order to run XWindows on my Overo Earth ??


Thanks …




Yes . Its a console image not a  desktop image or palmtop image.

You could add xwindows if you really need it.

If the image contains the libraries , you can still output video
e.g mplayer or opengl etc
