I run Fedore Core 3. I have a logitech cordless multimedia keyboard and I had added a new keyboard to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/inet. I changed xorg.conf to use this keyboard instead of the default pc105. Everything worked fine till I upgraded to the latest xorg today (Apr 1st 2005 - hmm... wondering if I'm after all an April fool!). Now X doesn't recognise any keys. The selected icon just kinda blinks when I press a key (like it would when I press a key which can't be responded to). The mouse works fine, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and Ctrl+Alt+Fn work fine. Not sure about Ctrl+Alt+Del. Rest of the keys dont work in X.
All key work well in the console (text mode - not Konsole or gnome-terminal). Btw, I use GNOME. If I change xorg.conf to use pc105 and restart X, the next time I login, GNOME (or maybe X) asks me if I want to use "X settings" or "GNOME settings" for my keyboard. Doesn't matter which one I choose, the keyboard doesn't work in X.
When I switched from FC1 to FC3, vnc stopped accepting keys in FC3 when I vnced to my work machine. In FC1 keys used to work in vnc. I had made similar changes in FC1 too for the special keys to work. I'm pretty sure both these problems are related.
