RE: Problem with X on an Ultra 5

I had the same problem. anXious configured my keyboard incorrectly (I own a 
french SUN keyboard). I looked at XFconfig and realised that the keyboard 
was not configured and I couldn't even kill X due to a bad mapping. For the 
mouse anXious dit not give the right protocol.

This the XF86Config section for my mouse and keyboard : (French keyboard 

# These are the XKB settings determined by Xconfigurator
# and/or changed by the administrator
    XkbRules    "sun"
    XkbModel    "type5_euro"
    XkbLayout   "fr"
    XkbCompat   "compat/complete"
    XkbTypes    "types/complete"
    XkbKeycodes "sun(type5)"
    XkbGeometry "sun(type5euro)"
    XkbSymbols  "sun/fr(sun5)"
