Hi. Thank for your mail. I was already using the the Elite microcode. I
found the problem: usually I don't use X so when I changed from XFree to
xorg I forgot to install xserver-xorg-input-kbd and
xserver-xorg-input-mouse .....
Now it works correcltly. Remain the problem to change the framebuffer
setting because the image is a bit taller than my monitor. I hope to find
information to change this by google ;)
