FYI, same also happens for 

Option  "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"

Comment 2 Len Trigg 2004-04-04 23:20:09 EDT
The nocaps setting works fine with selinux disabled (I haven't tried

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-06 11:57:41 EDT
Do you get any SELinux errors when it's enabled?
Comment 4 Len Trigg 2004-04-12 22:58:53 EDT
Sorry, I have not tried reenabling selinux (haven't had time to muck
around with it, just needed to get the machine working) -- perhaps the
original reporter can check for errors.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-04-13 16:36:05 EDT
reassigning to SElinux "policy" component as per above.  There's no
Xorg problem here that I can see.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-22 14:53:31 EDT
I need some avc messages or something,  I have very little to go on here.

Comment 7 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-05-11 04:55:22 EDT
I seem to miss something about this bug. XF86Config? There is no
XFree86 in FC2t2. Changed to xorg. Are you editing the wrong file?
