packagemanagement and dependencies - xfce4 setup does not install xorg

Hi All!

Just wondering, that, for example, xfce4 or xrdp does not enforce the installation of xorg.
Was using a LXC container (using daedalus, kernel 5.10) which should run OpenHAB.
How is this to explain?
I fumbled around for some hours without to understand it.
I just installed another LXC container, configured network, installed minimal tools,
again using devuan daedalus via 'lxc-create'.
Then 'apt install xfce4', following by 'apt install xrdp'.
xrdp comes up with an empty window and I found no xorg installed!
Just to refresh myself, because "Ithink I do it this ways ever" (for tests),
I repeated the same steps to install debian bookworm - works immidiately.
Has included xorg!

If I manually install xorg after that, I am seeing a <defunkt> xorg process,
which fast exits. This is a container, so I cannot connect to the console,
but made this countlesse number of times without any problem.

Can someone shed some light onto this or give me a tip?
(Used 'devuan daedalus, kernel 5.10)

Thanks anyway,
Manfred

if the xfce4 metapackage doesn't bring that in, you may want to file a bug report with Debian. IIRC Devuan doesn't modify that package from upstream.

But why does it work in Debian itself?
As I wrote: Made comparable installs (all via netsetup).
