This just requires porting the BUI build from BeagleBox to PiBox.

This action is needed in order to provide a default X configuration that allow management via the HDMI interface. It may (possibly) be used as the interface used on the fbtft device.

  • Status changed from New to In Progress

Since the fbtft device will not use X11, I don't need a modified matchbox for it. I can use stock Matchbox to configure PiBox through the HDMI interface, however.

So this is changed from installing BUI to installing and configuring Matchbox.

Matchbox is enabled and integrated into the boot for the HDMI display.

Now it needs to be configured nicely. That will be different issues.

Closing this issue.
