kdm&keyboard problem


i just recently upgraded from kde305 to kde310. everything used to work fine, i used the "old" kdm to select between window manages and to log in graphically.

in the new version of kdm (the one which cam with kde310) has a problem though. it starts, but i cant do anything with the keyboard. even the numlock/capslock/scrolloc leds cant be activated when using kdm!!! it just seems that my keyboard vanishes when starting kdm...

everything else works fine, I can log in to console, start X, fire up any wm (kde310 works too strangely), but with kdm... as I said. its strange...

can anyone tell me anything what to do about this? there should be no confilcts with old libs (I cleaned up everything very carefully) or configs or whatever...
