1) I can not use 'sudo' but have to log in as 'su' to do anything.
2) I can not find a desktop environment, 'startx' can not be found.
3) 'rpi-update' seems to work ok but throws out a few errors when it updates. Reboots ok tho.
Any help would be appreciated before I start build my apps on top of it.
Just to clarify, because I suspect some/all of the replies here missed it. Are you using the installer as you have stated, or an image? My suspicion would be you just need to apt-get install lxde or whatever. (Also ensure the user is setup, per advice in this thread).
Or use an image file, the official one is probably going to be the simplest, especially if you require help in future.
