Keymap problem when upgrading xfree86 in slink...
I've just reinstalled my system, and something strange happens...
(I'm running slink on a Pentium II)
I have a S3 Trio 3D/2X video card... Which is not supported by xfree
3.3.3 (which came with slink 2.1). So I first installed slink, then
upgraded xfree86 from:
deb http://www.debian.org/~vincent xfree-upgrade main
It worked fine, but after it runs the setup script, X does work in the
test.. But when I go back to text mode, it says
| System: `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/xkbcomp -w 1 -R/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb
| -xkm -m us_intl -em1 "The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp)
| reports:"-emp "> "-eml Ėrrors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X
| server"keymap/xfree86 compiled/xfree86.xkm'
I had installed slink once, and upgraded by downloading tar.gz files
and installing them manually... That worked with no problems (except
that dpkg didn't know I had a new version of X).
I tried to install it yesterday, using apt-get to upgrade X... And I
had the same problem I have today. If I enter X, of course, I'll have
backspace and delete being mapped identically...
What could be wrong? Should I hve upgraded to slink 2.1r4 first (does
this make any difference? That would be my next step, but I wanted to
have X running before anything else)
Thanks a lot,
