I have found that hurd K8 CD1 runs a lot better during installation part and 
also the gnumach-kernel than K7.
I have tried out the command Marco Gerards gave me to establish a console to 
run startx on

The startx have the problem of recognizing the keyboard and hurd hangs at this 
The command 'console -d vga -d pc_kbd --repeater=kbd -d pc_mouse 
--repeater=mouse -c /dev/cons /dev/vcs'
will not execute the expected result, and returns only with message to check 
console --help.

My version shows that I have the switches -d and -c

The same result happens on two different machines and it must be something that 
I am not doing right.
Whatever I choose as keyboard it always turn out to give me the Aemrican. This 
doesn't matter. What I want is to have an X running.

To me it seems that the whole installation runs to the end with only minor 
errors that causes no hang, especially the K8 is smooth here.

So, both and is running to the end.
