The "xorg-server" package currently depends on these packages:


If one however installs only these dependences the "xorg-server" will not
work properly:

1.) Virtual console switching doesn't work.
2.) You cannot use alternate keyboard layouts.

1.) Install "xorg-server" package with "xorg-client" package.
2.) Launch the X server e.g. via XFree86's "xdm".
3.) Try to switch virtual consoles.
4.) Check logfiles and find out that the X server cannot load the keyboard
    layout tables.

Either add a dependence to "xorg-clients" to the "xorg-server" package
or move "xkbcomp" and the assosiated data files to the "xorg-server"
