HP-UX 11.11: X doesn't recognize mouse and keyboard

hi folks,
i've got a blank hp visualize C3000 workstation and installed HP-UX 11.11. When I want to start X, I get the following error message:
# X
Fatal server error:
Couldn't open X pointer device!  Is one attached?

I've connected an mouse and a keyboard with an usb/ps2 connector. ioscan lists them:

Try using a standard PS/2 mouse.

USB to PS2 connectors aren't reliable, eg they don't work on my KVM.

The C3000 Workstation has only USB-connetors. There are no PS/2 Connectors. I tried a native usb-mouse but it was the same problem. The keyboard(with usb-ps/2) works fine in console-mode.

I found nothing usefull on the hp websites. I only got the blank machine, without software, without keyboard, without mouse, without anything else. I was happy to get the Software an now this. I allready used linux but the FX4 grahpics isn't supported by Xorg.

My HP J5000 supports almost any USB keyboard and mouse (even Microsoft USB mouse is working Smilie).
Don't use PS/2 to USB convertors. Buy normal USB keyboard and mouse.
J5000 is a big brother of C3000. Even on standard PC you way have problems with such convertors...

I checked my system with Silver Line USB mouse and keyboard, Genius keyboard and Microsoft mouse. Everything is working perfectly.
