Startx Error - jl_678 - 05-07-2016


I just installed Longsleeps base Ubuntu image and and then used the included script to install Mate desktop.  All went smoothly.  I now want to use Mate to configure Wifi.

I run StartX and the first problem I ran into was 

(EE) parse_vt_settings: Cannot open /dev/tty0 (No such file or directory)

I think that that was due to the fact that I needed to run startx as root.  (I included that example in case someone searches the forum.)  Anyway, I then ran "sudo startx" and then the system hands with the following error messages.

modprobe: FATAL: Module g2d_23 not found in directory /lib/modules/3.10.65-7-pine64-longsleep
modprobe: FATAL: Module mali_drm not found in directory /lib/modules/3.10.65-7-pine64-longsleep
modprobe: FATAL: Module sunxi_cedar_mod not found in directory /lib/modules/3.10.65-7-pine64-longsleep
SunxiMaliDRI2_Init: drmOpen failed!

So this brings me to my questions.  Did I do something wrong?  Is there something I can do to fix this?

Finally, is there a simple way to configure wireless via the CLI?  That is my first goal because I am running this headless.

Thank you!

I think that I sorted this one out. A reboot seemed to be required. I just restarted the Pine and it come up happily. Sorry!
