Sarge X11 Amiga clgen configuration
For some time I have been having trouble getting the Sarge release of X to work on my Amiga
2000 w/clgen video board. I hope the following additional information will give someone
here an 'a ha!' moment that can lead me to a solution.
I reinstalled the x-window-system package, after having removed all the x* and related
When X attempts to start after a reboot, it does not start, and when X is started via the
shell (user root), I get the following error message:
> Error: Can't find file "pc/usa1" for symbols include
> Abandoning symbols file "default"
Note that this error does not cause the server to shut down when run from a logged in shell
via the startx command, but it does seem to cause the server to shut down when starting from
the boot process.
The above error is generated when I use the following for the keyboard segment of my
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "amiga"
Option "XkbLayout" "usa1"
Note that the above is hand-modified, as the package configuration will now allow you to
select "Option "CustomKeycodes" which is needed to get uppercase characters.
I did notice that there is no item for "amiga" or "usa1" in the /etc/X11/xkb/symbols
