Description Adam Jackson 2011-11-30 09:51:05 EST
Description of problem:

s-c-k is the sole remaining user of pyxf86config, which is itself a fairly fragile bit of code.  If it's possible to port us off of it, we should do so.

I _think_ that code can (and should) simply be removed, as system-setup-keyboard handles conversion from /etc/sysconfig/keyboard to xorg.conf.d already.  The existing code is probably broken anyway, as the 'kbd' driver is somewhat deprecated these days.
Comment 1 Peter Hutterer 2011-11-30 16:56:32 EST
All system-config-keyboard needs to do is write out to /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and provide the keyboard_models database (we could move that one to system-setup-keyboard if necessary). Any actual X keyboard configuration that system-config-keyboard does is ignored by the server anyway. So porting off it would simply mean dropping the code that writes out the InputDevice sections.

Well that's easy then.
