If I want to add a new layout to the default one, it gives this error message two times:Error activating XKB configuration.Probably internal X server problem.X server version data:The X.Org Foundation60802000The Matt Zimmerman (mdz) wrote on 2004-09-11: #6 I wonder where GNOME gets the default map from, if it has one... mine is currently 3.

Regards, PS: Hangul is the name of the korean alphabet. FedoraForum.org is privately owned and is not directly sponsored by the Fedora Project or Red Hat, Inc. but as I said, your solution worked completely.
Full text and rfc822 format available. It's just been one blooper after another with xorg. A couple that cause the error are French Canadian, Japanese, Vietnamian, Hungarian, etc... Try using simpler configuration or taking more fresh version of XFree software.

I'd be interested in seeing all the XFree86.0.logs, given we're now stupidly verbose about XKB in them. at one point in the files it says 'xfree86'. Message #54 received at [email protected] (full text, mbox, reply): From: althaser
Comment 4 Stéphane Loeuillet 2004-06-07 02:28:03 UTC alan, you mean it is a dupe of bug #477 ? (also old libxklavier's fault) libxklavier is not part of xorg, both should be KDE suggests korean mapping, Gnome too via the keyboard property. i got it from installing dropline gnome, which uses xorg. still.
Otherwise keyboard input seems ok(?) I did not have this problem with RedHat 9. go figure. Unfortunately I do not know how to provide the information that the error message requested. As I was saying, this might be a libxklavier bug - see the comments in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=120858 It may help if you make a symlink from xfree86.lst -> xorg.lst.
This bug has affected at least Debian, Red Hat and Slackware, and I expect that many users of other distributions as well. weird eh? In a DHCP configuration file, include a line for the thinclient you want to boot. Acknowledgement sent to Margarita Manterola
Another machine which has had a clean install of FC2test3, with fresh home directory, does *not* exhibit this problem. ------------------------------------- Error activating XKB configuration. Full text and rfc822 format available. I installed DROPLINE, and after I installed it, it worked fine, till I did the DROPLINE Update, now when I reboot, I recieve error @ startup Error activating XKB configuration. If other layouts are needed, it should be reported upstream.
Comment 7 Danie Wessels 2004-10-22 00:28:21 UTC Now in Fedora Core 2 (Upgraded from RH9) with my A4TECH keyboard, "Model: KBS-720" I get (when entering X): Error activating XKB configuration.
