System: Fedora Core 2 (test 3) on Dell C640 Laptop. I updated my system using
the up2date program (I think that x server was upgraded). When I log into the
Gnome desktop, it gives me the "error activating XKB configuration". Here is the
information requested in the error dialog.
[selvanr@localhost selvanr]$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""
[selvanr@localhost selvanr]$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
layouts = [us]
model = pc105
overrideSettings = false
options = 
as it has been reported around 10 times for monolithic 'xorg', replace 'xfree86'
by 'xorg' in your xorg config file
bug #653 is a dupe of this one
see alsa #514, #514 & #544
(and a lot more in 'xorg')
