Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

The keyboad mapping in the log is "us", but i set german->latin1-no-dead-keys.
Perhaps the problem occur because i dont setup any other user execept root.
I press "No" in the dialog box asking to add other useres.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? It does not look like
you have uploaded your xorg.conf file. If you won't reply in one month, I will
have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 5 Peter Hutterer 2008-07-18 03:34:12 UTC
Looking at the log, no keyboard layout is specified in the xorg.conf.
With current F9, keyboards will honour settings in the xorg.conf, but
a matching InputDevice section is required to change the layout from the defaults.

Closing as NOTABUG, cause is misconfiguration.
