Description Nick Brennan 2004-07-20 23:18:09 UTC
When running X (regardless of the manager, i.e. KDM or tvwm etc) the keyboard mapping is all incorrect.

I am running the bindist of the X server (takes to long to compile).

I have reviewed many different settings picked up in the SPARC forums. Here is the keyboard & server section from my XF86Config:

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier  "Keyboard0"
    Driver      "keyboard"
    Option      "CoreKeyboard"
    Option      "XkbRules"      "sun"
    Option      "XkbMode1"      "type5"
    Option      "XkbLayout"     "en_US"
    #Option     "Protocol"      "Standard"
    #Option     "XkbKeycodes"   "sun(type5)"
    #Option     "XkbTypes"      "default"
    #Option     "XkbCompat"     "default"
    #Option     "XkbSymbols"    "sun/us(sun5)"
    #Option     "XkbGeometry"   "sun(type5)"

#    Option     "Protocol"      "Xqueue"
#    Option     "AutoRepeat"    "500 5"
#    Option     "Xleds" "1 2 3"
#    Option     "XkbDisable"


Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Main Layout"
    Screen      "Screen0"
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    Option      "HandleSpecialKeys"     "Always"

I have played with the lines that are commented out and no luck.

Thanks in advance.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.startx or xinit

Actual Results:  
keyboard mapping is incorrect.

I think this is rather sparc-related than kde-related, reassigning as most KDE-People won't have much sparc-knowledge.

You didn't give us `emerge info` output.

Please provide the output from emerge info to help us further diagnose the issue.  Thanks.
