I'm trying to install an APK and run the app's APK under 'debug mode'

1) During starting up, in the Grub Menu, #2 (Android-x86 6.0-r2 (Debug
mode)) is chosen.

*Android-x86 6.0-r2*

*Android-x86 6.0-r2 (Debug mode)*

*Android-x86 6.0-r2 (Debug nomodeset)*

*Android-x86 6.0-r2 (Debug video=LVDS-1:d)*

2) At the terminal '(debug-found)@android:/android #', I typed following (APK
file named 'app-debug.apk', it is in the path '/mnt/app-debug.apk), the
terminal returns without doing anything, see attached screen shot

*pm install -r -d /mnt/app-debug.apk*

3) If I used the same command 'pm install ...' inside 'Android Terminal'
after 'Desktop' is launched, it works fine.

see attached screen shot 'grub-option1-android-terminal.png'.

same problem with command 'am start', when I typed 'am start -n
PACKAGE_NAME/.ACTIVITY_NAME', it runs the app from 'Android Terminal', but
doesn't do anything in terminal '(debug-found)@android:/android#'.
