How to shoot with manual lenses on the A7/r?

I apologize in advance if this is common knowledge, but I have a few questions.

I just got an adapter for my Leica R glass to NEX mount from Henrys (toronto, canada)

I have cleaned  the lenses, and am ready to shoot.

I mounted the lenses on the adapter and I mounted the adapter on the camera.

Turned on the camera, and low and behold, Aperture keeps showing a blinking ???, kind of annoying.

How do I make it go away.

Also,I tried to review a picture, and it said no lens attached error, and would not let me review it. that said this only happened one time.

Am I doing something wrong? I thought I could specify the aperture of the lens on the lens and on the camera.

Sony Alpha a7
