debian 8.0 hppa installed successfully

Hello HPPA community,

I managed to install debian 8.0 on my HP C3750.
Oh boy I almost forgot how entangling IPL can be... and the disk partitioning...

anyway, here is the result:

Ok, I have added ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports to my apt sources.list file and installed the key. So far so good, I can search packages and install them. But... 
I installed the system with kde desktop. When I try to "apt-get install something", aptitude is trying to remove around 350 packages, most of them are kde or xserver related. 

I have a few questions, perhaps more debian related than hppa related... sorry I come from slackware linux...

- is there a way to "lock" installed packages so aptitude won't ask me to remove them?
- is there a package browser (similar to https://packages.debian.org/jessie/ )?
- although I haven't tried it yet, does X environment work with the integrated video card? I remember reading something that with linux/hppa graphics didn't work.

thank you all for the enormous and amazing effort.
