Slackware 12.2 on VirtualBox 2.1.0


Hi!

Anyone got a chance to get Slack 12.2/KDE installed and running additional keyboard layouts in KDE?

I thought I made a mistake somewhere, but with KDE 3.5.10 it always finishes with crash in

setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout lv -variant tilde

Actually, it is not important what to do - setxkbmap always finishes with crash (unable to load map).

On physical HW is is working ok. (It was so also in previous Slack/KDE).

Ha. Problem solved.

I found guilty one - that VBox video driver vboxvideo (from VBox 2.1.0 guest additions). When i changed video driver to vesa, everything seems to be OK.I did not observed anything like this in previous VBox versions
