Question Answer

So.. I found the answer to my question
it has three errors logind (systemd) was having trouble access the input keyboard type
second one is drm device is not found which implies that you have trouble accesing your output port. try to troubleshoot the port make it accessible to the board and then try to launch weston with correct config.

NOTE: Weston wayland wont launch if you dont have keyboard or a mouse connected preferably a usb
