 That is normal. Check it on your desktop PC as well as on the Freerunner by
pressing ctrl-alt-F1.

I have flashed the latest u-boot image but this has made no difference.

In Om2007.2 I have a file /tmp/x.log where you see the messages from the X
server. Maybe it's the same name in FSO or a similar one. On my system I can
start/stop/restart the X-server thru  /etc/init.d/xserver-nodm, maybe it's
just that the link into /etc/rc5.d is missing on your system.
