Re: FC4 XKB config problem



I'm running FC3, and I'm seeing the same.

Don't remember seeing a reply to your query...

Now this is getting weird. I've googled my way to several statements that this is a known bug, and can be fixed by symlinking xfree86* to xorg* and changing the Xkbrules entry in xorg.conf from xfree86 to xorg -- but those entries are already present in my installation and I'm still getting the error. Ideas, anybody?

I've encountered this problem after my upgrade from FC3 to FC4:

Gnome gives the following error box on login:

************BEGIN DIALOG BOX
Error activating XKB configuration.
It can happen under various circumstances:
- a bug in libxklavier library
- a bug in X server (xkbcomp, xmodmap utilities)
- X server with incompatible libxkbfile implementation

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation
60802000

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of <b>xprop -root | grep XKB</b>
- The result of <b>gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd</b>
************END DIALOG BOX

xprop produces:

_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""


gconftool-2 produces NO output.


yum update produces this:

A partial listing of /etc/X11 looks like this:

drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Jun 2 16:37 xinit
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Apr 9 20:44 xkb

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 547 Apr 11 05:43 Xmodmap


Each time yum update is run, it leaves another symbolic link to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb, which is a symbolic link back to /etc/X11/xkb. A listing of the actual xkb looks like this:

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 9 20:43 compat

The system seems normal in other respects, including the keyboard; the only problem indications are the error box that appears on every login, and the error message in yum. Advice? Thanks...
