Upon installation of K7 error messages......'error processing locales 
error 138............'
                                                             .....'1632 Bus 
error....1897 Bus error......
Also freeze and hang of whole system when harddisk stop/pause sound is heard (I 
have learned what that tiny sqeeke is.)

What I usually have to do is to start all over again:
.....'mke2fs -b 2048 -L hurd_K7 -o hurd /dev/hdc7....' on a 1024 MB size 
Then use the CD1 and boot with bf24 kernel, only us-keyboard is 
admitted,initialize and activate swappartition of approx 512 MB, install 
basesystem,reboot single user .native-install...and a seconf reboot single user 
./native-install again, reboot multiuser and make necessary devicefiles, reboot 
to linux and copy complete ready-made fstab_K7 to mount hurd partition 
/etc/fstab,reboot hurd.....and now everuthing is fine for further installation.

Choosing nb_NO.UTF-8 (?) gives better installation float but still errors, but 
now I am able to get all the way through /upgrade/ and to the 
end of installation and X-directory is set up in such a way that at least the 
prompt can find and accept 'startx'. Now I am close..............Startx gives 
hang as previously,but at least I have the X-config ready, and I now try out 
M.Gerards commandline.

Upon Marco Gerards 'console -d vga..............' the machine will not accept 
the command typing and refers to '--help' section ----------strange!
Is the 'export LD_LIBRARY_PATH......' still necessary? I would not expect this 
stopping the console command to get a console for X

This last installation I chose 1. Dialog interface instead of Gnome and Kde 
since the latter two caused error messages. Thiese choices are presented during 
the first or second boot nativ-install.

Thats it for now, for whoever who has time and interest to read and answer some 
of this.
