Description Nicholas Allen 2004-05-19 14:45:10 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
When I start a GNOME session on Fedora Core 2 I get 5 or 6 error messages popping up. All messages are the same and say:

Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

It asks me to add the output of two commands so here they are:

xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "gb", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "gb", "", ""
[test@kickass test]$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
 layouts = [gb]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []

Also when I run KDE and go to the keyboard configuration in control centre there are no keyboards or keyboard layouts to choose. This used to work in FC1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in to GNOME after upgrading FC1 to FC2

Actual Results:  Get error messages. Cannot change keyboard layouts.

Expected Results:  Should not get error messages. Should be able to change keyboard layouts.

There is a similar problem with kxkb, stemming from the fact that 
xfree86 is now called xorg. 
To fix: 
cd /etc/X11/xkb/rules/ 
ln xorg.lst xfree86.lst 
ln xorg.xml xfree86.xml
