X11 not working on Debian 8 Jessie with ARM Chromebook.


I am a newbie to Linux and the terminal. I have got a Samsung Chromebook XE303C12, which uses an ARM processor with Mali Midguard t604 GPU. I managed to boot a Debian 8 image using instructions from link at the base.
The problem:
I cannot get X11 to work. the log file outpup that i get when i enter
Code:
startx
is at the base as well, as i cannot post attachments for some reason.

i can provide any more info, and any help is appreciated.
