can't start X server

I already removed all X packages and re installed from CD, used xorgconfig but I can't still startx.

This is the end of the error message.

I suppose that in some way the module keyborad is gone... so should I re-compile the kernel?

problem resolved...

as they say in another post, I changed 'keyboard' to 'kbd' in xorg.conf
