OK did that.

After the first reboot it booted into the (I think) LXDE login instead of normal console. (I had not changed the startup options when asked after the install).
With dietpi-config I selected autostart to manual-login.
Rebooted again.

This time all went well. Rebooted to manual login with the normal screen showing.

So there seems to be a bug with the install:
1. autostart is changed
2. something else requiring the command you provided.

thx for verifying this. I had same experience with the changed login method.

It is reported to the developer already. https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issu ... -793836203

Looks like running /boot/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware rpi-opengl vc4-kms-v3d-pi4 is fixing the xserver start (independent from the login method change/bug).
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Great you could confirm this all. Yesterday I spent 4 hrs around this until resorting to the forum :cry:

I guess this will be completely fixed by a dietpi update, which when released I need to install to get the fix.

thx!

yes it will be fixed on next update. But you already have all you need ;)

Login method is back to manuell and your system is booting as it should be. As well you have the secret command executed to fix the xserver start :D

Code: Select all

/boot/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_hardware rpi-opengl vc4-kms-v3d-pi4
