Description a.hentz 1999-03-05 09:09:11 EST
The X server writes a temporary file to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/compiled. Since we want to mount /usr
read-only (in accordance with the linux file system
standard, I guess), that directory should be  link to
somewhere in the /var subtree.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 16:19:59 EST
This will be fixed in XFree86- and later.
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/compiled is now symlinked to /var/lib/xkb.
Thank you for the report.
