System: NetBSD atlas.ipv6.stack.nl 3.99.2 NetBSD 3.99.2 (ATLAS) #21: Mon Mar 28 15:07:28 CEST 2005 martijnb@atlas:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ATLAS i386
When I enable kdm, by putting "kdm=yes" in /etc/rc.conf, my keyboard locks
up. This started after I switched to running kde 3.4. My installation is
up-to date, both kernel and sources from earlier today. All packages
are up-to-date. I am using XFree-4.5.0, built using a crossover build.
The odd thing is that this *only* happens at boot time. If I boot with
kdm=no, login, path it, and run kdm using /etc/rc.d/kdm start, it works
ok. If enabled at boot time, X completely locks up my keyboard, and the
only way to get things working again is by logging in remotely and
killing the X server. After that, it works great. Restarting kdm-greet will
not do. XFree86.*.log doesn't show any differences. xdm doesn't suffer from
Logfiles and config files are available - just drop me a line.
Probably only on my machine :(, but set kdm=yes in rc.conf, and reboot.
No idea. Sorry.
