4.19 LTS Kernel not working GUI (startx) after dist upgrade

Hello,

I was using kernel 4.19 surface-lts for touchscreen support.

After dist upgrading I now get a tty1 black screen and startx gives error.

I wanted to reply to this post, but it is closed:

LTS is a Devuan based system and it is under development. By now only rolling is supported.

Hi dmknght,

Thanks for your reply.

This specific LTS version is the one suggested to have touchscreen capabilities on a Microsoft Surface, according to the linux-surface repo in github (https://github.com/linux-surface/linux-surface/wiki/Known-Issues-and-FAQ).

As mentioned, it was working before the update.

Maybe I shouldn’t distro-upgrade then? I dunno.

Thanks anyway.

could be compatible problem with kernel
