X on a 715/33


I'm trying get X working on a 715/33. I've used an HOWTO:
"Using HIL keyboard and HIL mouse on PARISC" (I gess that
HIL refers to the proprietary connectors used to connect the
mouse to the keyboard and the keyboard to the box).

I can get X starting (gray display, with an X cursor), but
there are some problems:

1) In order to use the HIL mouse, I have read that I should
use the device "/dev/input/mice". But in that case, X
complains that this device doesn't exists and exits with an
error. Note that "/dev/input/mice" exists in the filesystem.
I can however use a serial mouse and get X starting.
I don't know either how to install GPM (probably because I'm
new to Debian: "apt-get install gpm" don't work ).

2) Once X starts and the gray screen appears, I can't use
the keyboard anymore. What's wrong?
The keyboard layout is probably French or Belgian/French,
but I dont specify a layout. Does it matters?

3) How to start the Windowmanager? I consider to use
windowmaker, which seems "lightweight".

A extract of my configuration file:

Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
 Driver "keyboard"
 Option "CoreKeyboard"
# Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
# Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
# Option "XkbLayout" "us"

# Don't work
#Section "InputDevice"
# Identifier "HIL Mouse"
# Driver "mouse"
# Option "CorePointer"
# Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
# Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"

Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier "Serial Mouse"
 Driver "mouse"
 Option "CorePointer"
 Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
 Option "Protocol" "Microsoft"
