Adding Radeon 7500 Graphics card to Rp4440

Hi,
I recently got ATI Radeon 7500 Graphics adaptor for Rp4440. I included necessary drivers to kernel (gvid)and installed necessary patches (Xserver cumulative). After adding the graphics card to slot-7 (As per the manual), I don't get any thing on the monitor!
My questions are
1) Is the USD KBD/Mouse supported on Rp4440?
2) USB to PS2 adaptor is optional or mandatory?
3) What else could be problem, why I am not getting CDE?
4) Is it possible to use Graphics as console (i.e. Redirect boot time messages to this display)

I am able see the hardware in ioscan/sam.

Note: Rp4440 is running HP-Ux 11.11 (Ver1)

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Pls Uncomment the end of the file in /etc/dt/config/Xservers settings as given below

* Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

Now reboot the server and check the status, you should get the CDE now.

Thanks
