Description of problem:
I see the following error message upon starting X (even as root):
X server version data
(asks for the output of two commands), included below:
[root@K5FA root]# xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "dk", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "dk", "", ""
[root@K5FA root]# gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
layouts = [dk]
model = pc105
overrideSettings = false
options = 
I would like to add, that RH9 didn't fint the video resolution. But I
remember that I could use "Generic Laptop display at 1400x1050" -
which worked fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X server version data: 60700000
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to let Anaconda guess the video resolution (no luck)
2. Select Generic LCD 1400x1050 in system-config-display
3. Restart X
Actual Results: I got a 640x480 window. The video card seems to be
correctly detected, but the monitor is not.
If I run system-config-display with --noui, I get:
ddcprobe returned bogus values
Expected Results: I would like to use the full resolution of the TFT
display fittet on the IBM T23
Oops, I forgot the main error-message, displayed shortly after
entering root as user and pw:
Error activating XKB configuration
