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.
