I'm using an MP kernel whose config file includes GENERICMP, which in turn includes GENERIC which
has that option set. I'm sure it's just some oversight of mine, but I still can't get it to work,
even by varing XkbRules, XkbModel, and XkbLayout. It looks like xkbcomp is running into problems - I
get a bunch of lines like this prined to stdout when I start X:
expected keysym, got XF86_Switch_VT_11: line 91 of pc/pc
expected keysym, got XF86_Switch_VT_12: line 95 of pc/pc
expected keysym, got XF86_Ungrab: line 127 of pc/pc
expected keysym, got XF86_ClearGrab: line 133 of pc/pc
expected keysym, got XF86_Prev_VMode: line 139 of pc/pc
expected keysym, got XF86_Next_VMode: line 149 of pc/pc
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Another weird thing is that when I run X with a config file supporting more than one video mode,
hitting the space bar changes the video mode! Clearly, something is not being mapped correctly.
I've still got a few things to try. If/when I figure out what the problem was I'll post a followup.
Thanks to everyone who has responded to my original post.
