I had a chance to get back into the shop for a short period -- further inspection seems to indicate that the GUI is not installed (?) I see it is failing, with the following-
rc.local{463}: sudo: startx: command not found
which scrolls on the screen = just before the login prompt - on bootup.

Looking at rc.local - I see it should be running (from /home/pi)
sudo -u pi startx
however the contents of /home/pi (or anywhere else) does NOT contain a startx.

So, I presume I need to install a package or so - but my Unix-fu is weak & VERY rusty to boot! Do i simply issue a
dpkg -l | grep rapsberrypi =ui-mods
or somesuch? Wanted to check in first before going off on my own here - I'm REALLY in unfamiliar territory here.

Thanks again for the fantastic support!
