any reason why so old Weston?

Nothing in the log looks wrong, Weston thinks everything works fine.
Try running weston-simple-shm when Weston is running. If that shows up,
then weston-desktop-shell has problems.

Weston usually does not like running without input devices, but in that
case it should just exit gracefully.

Is fbcon working right? Can you run any old fbdev programs like 'fbi'?
