The kbd and mouse translators come with the Hurd package.
It shouldn't make a huge difference, but maybe binary you got were compiled
with incompatible libraries.

I should remove this cruft from alpha, thanks for letting us know.

You should tell us how you set them up, esp the mouse translator.

Then the kbd translator doesn't work. Reinstall the Hurd package, and do

settrans -apfg /dev/kbd
settrans -apfg /dev/mouse

cd /dev;

settrans mouse /hurd/mouse .....(your options)......

That's the mouse translator not working.

BTW, in this case I was able to help you, but it is better if you quote the
xserver log verbatim instead reciting what you think is relevant. Always
quote verbatim what you did and what you got, so we can help you best.
