Keyboard layouts no longer work

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):
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.
ln xorg.lst xfree86.lst
ln xorg.xml xfree86.xml
