hi every1,

i ve been trying to get linux ubuntu linaro distribution working on my zedboard...i ve followed all the right steps including making:

fsbl.elf

system.bit

U-BOOT.elf

then making a unified BOOT.bin

all this is loaded into a fat32 partition

then making a kernel image by the name of uimage

then making a device tree from zynq-zed-adv7511.dts

then downloading the latest linaro distribution the extracting it on a ext4 linux partition

when i boot the board....the tests pass fine and the kernel is loaded succesfully and linux rootfs seems to be working fine

i get the final message of root@linaro-linux-desktop

after that i see 02 penguins in the top right corner of my hdmi monitor and then a cursor starts blinking and nothing happens

i change the terminal by pressing alt+F1...this terminal belongs to root user....while the linux seems to be working fine...and all the linux command line interface seamlessly works through out the use but whenver i try to run a gnome application like a game or a UI based application...it gives the error....cannot open display...???

pressing ALT+F7 displays a cursor in the top right corner and nothing happens no matter how long i wait

please provide assistance...i ve been stuck for a long while now

best regards

ali
