Description of problem:
-The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
-The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X server version data: The X.Org Foundation 60700000
Steps to Reproduce:
1.enter user name and password in GUI login screen
Actual Results: While components are loading, as first graphic icon
"lights up", small error window opens with error message as above.
System tray does not completely load. Only see Red hat, Open Office
text editor, OO spreadsheet, and printer icons. nothing else in tray.
Expected Results: no error window. expected default icons in tray.
After install over Red Hat 9.1 system was finished and I had rebooted,
got the text screen that new hardware had been found and should I
configure new AT keyboard - I pressed OK - probably should not have.
The Xkb errors are probably another symptom of bug 121016. Try the
workaround suggested in #4.
I encountered the same problem, and it was over after editing the X
config file as mentioned in workaround 4 in bug 121016.
The workaround worked for me but additionally, the XFree86 -> Xorg
conversion scripts miss another item:
/etc/X11/X was still linked to ../../usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86
I modified the link to point to /usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg
