Using the "pseudo-graphical" installer, the installation went completely fine!

But when starting up the newly installed Hurd, I only got a console.
lightdm didn't came up, although it was installed (I installed Xfce desktop 
task within the installation).
Looking at the logs, I found this in /var/log/lightdm/x-0.log:

	(EE) Fatal server error:
	(EE) Unrecognized option: vt7

So starting up X fails, due to unrecognized option.
