Description mw 2000-03-31 16:09:46 EST
In /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession the line

if [ -z $XKB_IN_USE -a ! -L /etc/X11/X ]; then

causes an error if $XKB_IN_USE="".  Correctly:

if [ -z "$XKB_IN_USE" -a ! -L /etc/X11/X ]; then

Despite this correction, I cannot make my BackSpace delte backward---which
was working perfectly before my upgarde to 6.2.  Perhaps there is something
else in this file that is not correct?

Some more problems I see:

# xkb and xmodmap don't play nice together
if [ -z $XKB_IN_USE ]; then

again, $XKB_IN_USE not quoted.  Also, I do not see `sysxkbmap', `userxkbmap'
defined anywhere in the file.
