lubuntu on beagleboard (xdm) - I get no desktop


I got ubuntu on a beagleboard xm. I installed lubuntu-desktop, xdm and some xorg packages to get X running. Now, when I provide username/password it looks like the session will start (screen goes completely dark right after providing both) but then I go back to login screen (no error messages, though). What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.
