Banana Pi M5 not booting into the desktop



Logs: https://paste.armbian.com/kasujazuwo



I've been looking to run the desktop version of Armbian on the M5 however it will not start (blank screen, no signal). I can see the Debian Icon at startup, and the Armbian Icon at shutdown.

startx does not bring it up, however sudo startx will but I'm not sure if this is the best way.


I have tested:



and both are the same.


Any ideas are appreciated!

Hi SoSie,


Thanks for your message, that is what I did in the end - I went back to:



and is booting into the desktop now, but I'm sure I still had those errors in dmesg 🤔


I thought it was due to a permissions problem, but didn't know where to look..
