Description Bob 2004-05-04 16:08:48 UTC
I realise the summary is the same as 3 similar bugs, but my hardware is
(slightly) different, and so I add this bug report.  
Error Msg:
Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
Data requested by the error message box:
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""

 layouts = [us]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = []

My keyboard is a 125 key HP SK2506 'Internet Keyboard' (not including the volume
control knob which produces seperate key codes for volume up and volume down)
--which makes it really look like a 127 key keyboard.
The error message came up running Fedora Core 2-test3 with Linux kernel

does changing xfree86 to xorg in config files (on those xkb lines) change anything ?
