This happens to me if /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/{10-keymap,10-x11-keymap}.fdi have different settings for "input.xkb.layout". Either changing both values to "de" or "fedora-setup-keyboard" works for me (via /etc/hal/fdi/policy/). 

Error:            No Symbols named "nodeadkeys" in the include file "us"
                  Abandoning symbols file "(null)"

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Stef, since this bug was reported by you using the Fedora 11 beta, the Fedora distribution has had many updates. Could you retest using Fedora 12 and let us know if you can still reproduce it?

It did not happen with final anymore, sorry I don't have time to test with FC12.
We choose FC11 and are fighting with all struggle in an integration process to make it run for our needs so no time to experiment new one.
Maybe with FC13 next year.
Comment 7 Chris Campbell 2009-12-07 09:53:24 EST
Stef, no problem on the Fedora 12. According to Comment #6, the issue was resolved somewhere in the beta process and disappeared with final Fedora 11.
