Description of problem:
i have just installed a FC2 machine with all gnome and kde environnement.
it works like a charm.

when i apply the updates with yum update gnome doesn't work anymore.

when a user log it got the famous message

Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb

the first command give me this

_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "fr", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "fr", "", ""

the second give me nothing

In order to find which application is the culprit i modified the default 
gnome session file to something empty but i still got this infamous
message and the gnome environnement is screwed.

Comment 3 Edwin T. Floyd 2004-10-19 20:12:11 UTC
Same problem is happening to me.  Fresh install of FC2 with all the
latest up2date packages installed.  Gnome works fine for root, but
fails as above for non-root users.  I have tried everything in Bug
120858 to no avail.  One twist - KDE appears to work in that it
doesn't throw a pop-up message, but applications will not start.  This
bug appears to be a duplicate of Bug 123649.
