Well, if you don't set a theme then Marble won't do much except for showing 
the Marble Logo. So at that stage there isn't much going on in terms of 

The problems you are facing sound somewhat awkward: I've seen Marble running 
on several ARM devices without problems (Nokia N900, Nokia N9/N950 and Archos) 
- all including cross compilation, but also all of them running on X11. 

Do you have all plugins installed?
