Description Andreas Proteus 2009-09-26 09:49:01 UTC
updating to libdrm-2.4.14 causes the Scroll Lock LED which indicates the alternative keyboard layout to stop working.  The keyboard changes is just the led tha does not switch on.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -va =x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.14
2.emerge -v xorg-server  &&  qlist -I -C x11-drivers/ | xargs  emerge -v 
3. ALT-SHIFT: keyboard layout changes but led remains off.
4. reverting back to =x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.13,  led works again.

The relevant section of my xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "us,el"
    Option         "XkbVariant" "basic,extended"
    Option         "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"

Relevant instaled software.

are you _100%_ sure that upgrading/downgrading _only_ libdrm fixes your issue?

Could I ask you to try again?

Comment 2 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-10-02 15:26:00 UTC
Just a thought, could you try with a newer version of nvidia-drivers?

Oh and please provide your xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log

Thank you for you reply.

I emerged libdrm-2.4.14 again and I also did

emerge -v xorg-server mesa &&  qlist -I -C x11-drivers/ | xargs  emerge -v

and the LED worked!

The only difference this time was that I also reinstalled  media-libs/mesa, something that I omitted to do the first time.

Once again thank you for your time.
