Well, the output of showtrans /dev/*  for mouse and keyboard is as follows:
/hurd/mouse protocol=ps/2
/hurd/kbd  /dev/kbd
seems physical while my mouse is ps/2, and i have a standard
keyboard.However, there is a patch in
UCHIYAMA Yasushi   home page (hurd-xfree86.patch) that I don't use:: how do
I install this patch?
maybe this is the gen of X crash.

And something else,(might be usuful ) in order to install libc0.2(2.1.95) I
use this command
dpkg --install  libdb2..... libdb2-util....  libnss-db...

Thanks alot, I'm waiting for a response.
