Re: gnome install dependency update-binfmts (Linux Only)

Then when the gnome log on window expects input of user name the keyboard characters don't show in the window. I thought that maybe echo was off but, there was no response when I continued to enter the user name. I could not get any response nor get to a terminal to hunt for a cause.

Does xorg alone works for you ?
What is content of your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?
Do you have hal installed and running ?

Without hal, you might need to specify in your xorg.conf,
using something like:

Section "ServerLayout"
        InputDevice     "Generic Keyboard"
        InputDevice     "Configured Mouse"
        Option          "AutoAddDevices"  "off"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "kbd"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us,cz"
        Option          "XkbVariant"     ",qwerty"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "grp:shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/ums0"
#       Option          "Device"                "/dev/psm0"
        Option          "Protocol"              "auto"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"

I want to try to solve this issue.

Additional Info:

At boot the system is looking for file /dev/xconsole.
The file is not present/ Assume the xorg install failed to configure it or place it properly.

Work around:

Once into gnome and trying to use the keyboard the following frees it.
No Keyboard Response:
Select Actions> Run XDMCP chooser
At the Add host: Select cancel
Back in kFreeBSD the keyboard should respond to allow login.
After this kfreeBSD/gnome seems to operate normally.

I am open to suggestions.
