Re: no keyboard input visible with xsrc X11 on i386 -current?

Unless you actually need xkb-based functionality, you might consider
disabling xkb at server start time.  That's what I've usually ended up
doing...though admittedly I live in a mostly-ASCII world.  (I've so far
never found decent documentation on xkb, though admittedly I never
tried all that hard, because simply disabling it was easier and got me
to where I could fix up the rest with good old xmodmap.)

If that's what's the matter, that may well help.  I didn't get the
original message (my logs, if I've got the right log entries, say it
was marked as being in US-ASCII but contained non-ASCII text), but it
sounds as though xev is seeing keystrokes but something else isn't, in
which case I agree with magetoo's suggestions.

That too.
