Well.. I was sure one would need a "display driver" to use xorg on a beaglebone black. I installed a minimal xorg and... it magically worked out of the box (tested because I was wondering what would be the driver (not intel, nvidia or anything I knew). (Archlinux Arm). It should not ^^' I should have to do at least something... a "generic driver" or an old old-made c compil for an old unknown driver... hm

xorg is a lot smarter than it used to be. It detects and auto-supplies whatever display driver you need.
Pretty sure this should give a hint:

$ cat /proc/fb

@twovoyagers Yeah... Indeed. Right now I want to build a "media station" (kodi auto-start).. And... I have.. many.. many issues.

I took the easy way out. Bought a $30 MXQPro (Amlogic S905 - Quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 w/ Penta-core ARM Mali-450 GPU) a few years back. Android and kodi pre-installed.

Good luck!

@twovoyagers It looks like I will give up;

The device rely on "imx" display driver to be able to use it's hdmi port.... The problem is that it provide an implementation of opengl and it conflict mesa.

The "kodi-imx" package is broken and (probably) won't be fixed....So no kodi with imx... and no display without imx. yay
