debian buster (weekly build of 2019-04-22) ISO-Hybrid LXQt no gui on dell optiplex

Chris Guiver
I've been testing

https://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/weekly-live-builds/amd64/iso-hybrid/debian-live-testing-amd64-lxqt.iso

dated 2019-04-22 06:17 (copy/paste from web site)

(I've had troubles getting into #debian-live so apologies for how this
is presented.)

The Debian Buster (10) LXQt ISO fails to boot into gui (booting into
terminal) on

dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e8300, 8gb, amd/ati radeon rv610/radeon hd2400 pro/xt)
dell [optiplex] 960 (c2q-q9400, 8gb, amd/ati cedar radeon hd
5000/6000/7350/8350)

(these are how I report these systems in Ubuntu testing; details being
from `lshw` copy/pasted from a list of hardware)

however of note I had NO issues on

dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e6850, 5gb, amd/ati radeon rv516/x1300/x1550)
hp dc7700 (c2d-e6320, 5gb, nvidia quadro nvs 290)
hp 8200 elite sff (i5-2400, 8gb, nvidia quadro 600)
& others using same thumbdrive  (I'm excluding multi-screen issues
already reported, on debian, ubuntu and/or upstream, eg.
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=916105)

The [first] working system was used primarily as example; it's very
similar hardware (same model as one of the failed though it has
different external IO ports so yes it's different and with different
video card).  I haven't had issues with any laptop thus far tested.

There was no `reportbug` on the system, and if you need more
information, or want me to report another way - please just ask.

Fwd: debian buster (weekly build of 2019-04-22) ISO-Hybrid LXQt no gui on dell optiplex

I've included the prior email for reference.

Testing https://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/weekly-live-builds/amd64/iso-hybrid/debian-live-testing-amd64-lxqt.iso

dated : 2019-04-29 06:28

This week's boots on both
dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e8300, 8gb, amd/ati radeon rv610/radeon hd2400 pro/xt)
dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e6850, 5gb, amd/ati radeon rv516/x1300/x1550)
(mentioned as it failed on the first d755 [e8300,8gb] last week)

But fails (going to bash shell only) on
dell [optiplex] 780 (c2q-q9400, 8gb, amd/ati cedar radeon hd
5000/6000/7350/8350)
(booted fine on this box last week)

I haven't tried yet on the d960 (failed [bash only] using last week's
ISO); it's the machine I'm writing this on and haven't been willing to
reboot to try it today, and it booted to gui on other desktop boxes I
tried, plus all laptops (as per last week's) that I tried it on.

Same thumb drive used on each machine, and tried at least twice on any
failed machine (non-consecutive, ie. after a successful boot on
another box) like last time.
