This seems to be there for a while. I didn't do a clean install but
just upgrade to the rawhide. Shall this bug block issue 114961?
Comment 3 Ling Li 2004-04-28 00:11:30 EDT
This is a duplicate of bug 120858. The solution there (comment #42,
updating packages & removing XkbRules line) works for me, though the
libxklavier-devel package seems unnecessary to me and
`system-config-display --reconfig' gave the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 412, in ?
NameError: name 'hardware_state' is not defined

[The package versions are exactly the same as in comment #41 of bug
