Excatly same error and same listing (except I'm having Finnish
keyboard layout.)

If I comment out "Option= xkbDisable" from XFree86.conf, my keyboard
looses few characters, example the important "@" sign.

I installed FC test 2 and didn't got this error until I updated some
xorg related packages via up2date.

Comment 2 Michael Young 2004-04-30 10:57:42 UTC
I think this is another symptom of bug 121016. Try the workaround
suggested in #4.
triage->duplicate 121016

Comment 3 Subhendu Ghosh 2004-04-30 12:13:35 UTC
Workaround of commenting out the line for 

Option "Xkbrules" "xfree86" 

in /etc/X11/XF86Config eliminates the error msg.


Comment 4 Miloslav Trmac 2004-04-30 12:54:00 UTC
Mike, in bug 120858 you have offered to automatically edit the config
file and remove the Xkbrules line.

It looks like this will really be needed for people upgrading from FC1.

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2004-05-04 18:17:14 UTC
mitr: Agreed..   I just filed bug #122454 to track the config file
mod issue, and CC'd you on it.

Thanks for the reminder.
