who provides share/X11/xkb/rules/base ?


I have built a brand new X under /xorg-files/gfx-test/
I believed I have installed everything (using git-clone
and X7.4 site) that is needed, but I keep
hitting this problem in /xorg-files/gfx-test/var/log/Xorg.0.log
that causes my arrow keys on my Fujitsu A6030 laptop keyboard not working.

May I know which X package that provide xkb/rules/base ?

Hi centguy

Till now the package providing the keyboard rules was xkbdata. Now this is deprecated by XKeyboardConfig.
You should install it using something like:
Code:
./configure --with-xkb_base=/xorg-files/gfx-test/share/X11/xkb --with-xkb-rules-symlink=xorg

Hi bathory. I downloaded xkeyboard-config-1.2.tar.bz2 and
did what you said, ./configure blah blah, make , make install, done. (oh yes, I need to go to po/ and change the prefix in Makefile, the default is
/usr/lib or something). Thanks again.

Glad to see I've helped.
It took me hours to sort this out, cause I was looking for xkbdata that is not available any more.
Btw why didn't you get the latest xkeyboard-config-1.4?

Hi bathory. 1.4 version has empty files intltool-*.in, which make ./configure very unhappy. (... error something like Your intltool is too old. You need intltool 0.30 or later).
Last night I have switched to Centos5.2 from FC9 and tried to install xkeyboard-1.3. I was able to put it on CentOS5.2, just for fun and to double check. So far I have built X under FC9 with your help but not on
CentOS5.2 or CentOS5.1 (yet.. still thinking I should even try that, building X on CentOS 5.1 was my dream but now the default CentOS5.2 is okay with my Fujitsu.). Well, I may hit surprises but at least I understand how deep things can go with X..
