I also selected desktop and got only a console. For the untrusted

FWIW here are my partition table and the cmdline (which gives the PMON
version) of my lemote yeelong:

$ cat /proc/partitions 
major minor  #blocks  name

   3     0  156290904 hda
   3     1   58605088 hda1
   3     2    1052257 hda2
   3     3   57560895 hda3
   3     4          1 hda4
   3     5   19535008 hda5
$ cat /proc/cmdline 
console=tty no_auto_cmd root=/dev/hda5 PMON_VER=LM8089-1.3.5
