Question Keyboard problem?


I have just installed Mandrake 10.0 and got a problem first time when i log in using startx.

Below is the error:

Warning: Symbol map for key <AB03> redefined
Using last definition for conflicting fields
Warning: Symbol map for key <AB04> redefined
Using last definition for conflicting fields
Warning: Symbol map for key <AB05> redefined

Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server.


I have tried to locate the file xkbcomp in the computer and recognize that this file stores the keyboard configuration. I then follow the README in that folder and added a configured line for Keyboard in XFree86-4 but still received a same error.

Could someone show me how to fix it? Many thanx

egosz; they are the ones u posted on original post#1 (my screen are in red) and listed as i assumed u entered. those are what i had reference to.
that message states redefine (meaning reconfigure).
