I just upgraded from Redhat 9 to Fedora Core 2 on a Dell SMP PC. Most
things worked OK, with three exceptions. The first was the NVIDIA driver
didn't work. I got the new driver, installed it, and figured out what
weird things Dell had done, and fixed a version problem in Dell's
scripts. OK, only took a couple hours, and now I know a tiny bit about X
My second problem is that when I got in I get the following information
in a popup window:
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
Here's the results:
# xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc105", "us", "", ""
# gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
layouts = [us]
model = pc105
overrideSettings = true
options = 
When I upgraded the system, it did ask to re-configure the keyboard for
some reason. Maybe I did this wrong? But I know nothing about xkb. What
should I look at?
Should I be asking the X.Org people this instead?
ps - My 3rd problem is a minor firewall issue which I think I should be
able to figure out. Otherwise, thanks Fedora people! :)
