Description Mike A. Harris 2004-08-17 14:47:29 EDT
The legacy "keyboard" driver in X, is now deprecated and the new
"kbd" driver that's been there for a while now is enabled by
default.  system-config-display needs to be updated to configure
xorg.conf to use the "kbd" driver instead now.
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2004-08-19 02:59:14 EDT
pyxf86config 0.3.19-1 should already be doing this, which is what
system-config-display uses for the xorg.conf template:

* Wed Aug 11 2004 Jeremy Katz <katzj@redhat.com> - 0.3.19-1
- Change keyboard driver to kbd

Is this on a fresh install or an upgrade?
Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2004-08-25 06:16:22 EDT
tested on rawhide

import xf86config
xconfig = xf86config.createTemplate()

[root@pseries tmp]# grep kbd /tmp/xorg.conf
        Driver      "kbd"
