 I have read the section. But MAKEDEV does not work with the device name
 "mouse". It says unknown device name. /hurd/mouse is present. As /dev/mouse
 cannot be created, settrans is not working also. Please help me out of

 I also have one problem with "man". I cant see any man pages. Typing man
 gives the error
 "error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file:
 No such file or directory."
 What can solve the problem? I used debian's J2 cd's to install GNU/Hurd.
