Can't find xfree86 rules file error message
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
Description of problem:
When installing rawhide April 14 2004, the GUI starts up, but if I
shell back out to CTL-ALT-F1 I see the error message:
Can't find/load the xfree86 rules file (or something like that)
I'm sure it's related to the xorg change.
I didn't notice any ill effects during the install I could attribute
to this error message.
Bad setxkbmap, no cookie
[katzj@orodruin anaconda]$ setxkbmap -layout us -model pc104 -option ""
Couldn't find rules file (xfree86)
Can you strace that?
This appears to be caused by the X server config file containing
an unnecessary XkbRules "xfree86" option.

it's like a KDE and xOrg bug.
cause xOrg has rewrote rules files from xfree86* (XFree86) to xorg*
so to do it working just make 2 links:
~ cd /etc/X11/xkb/rules
~ ln -s xorg.lst xfree86.lst
~ ln -s xorg.xml xfree86.xml
and restart the X server
but better, I think, to recompile KDE to work with new xorg* rules files
