X.org server crash when pressing any extended "Internet" keys
Last modified: 2018-04-11 07:17:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The X11 server crashes when I press any of the extended keys on the Logitech
Cordless keyboard (Logitech Cordless Desktop MX, this one:
http://www.ixbt.com/peripheral/logitech/cd-mx/img1.jpg). Alas it's not my
computer so I don't know with which version this bug has been introduced, I was
told that X11 "sometimes crashes" and went to investigate.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into FC6
2. Even on the GDM screen (works in GNOME too) press any of the extended
so-called "Internet" keys, or any of the so-called "Multimedia" keys.
I tried to switch the keyboard model to "pc105" - nothing changed, still crashes.
I'm attaching xorg.conf and the X11 log with the crash report at the end.
