You would need the minimal X install, which I never remember the name,
and has some problems that were recently commented.
Xinit, GDM, and dudgie-desktop are all installed, but
when I run budgie-desktop it cannot connect to the init server.
Did you try "init 3"?
I can run startx as root and get a gnome shell. I get
a permission denied without root, "xf860OpenConsole: Cannot open virtual console 3
You have to edit permissions as commented in /etc/permissions.local,
then run "chkstat --system --set" to apply.
