OK, keyboard is working now.

If I use these settings, X fails to start. If I choose /dev/psaux X
will start, i.e. I can login, using keyboard, but no mouse. After
typing username/password system starts login but halfway through, it
stops. Maybe I'm not patient enough, but with the 2.4 I would have
seen the desktop already.

Thanks, I will check that with mine, as this is my first manual kernel
for a sparc. Could be I miss a relevant option (probably something to
do with mouse and/or its interface ;-) )
