Hi team. I'm trying to debug a recent commit to Linus's git repo that causes startx to halt with a complaint that it can't write a .xkm file to /var/lib/xkb. I'm assuming that the message is from xkbcomp, but I can't find where in the startx process that xkbcomp is run, or what else might produce such an error message. I'd like to reproduce the error by running xkbcomp manually so I can track it down.
startx runs Xorg, Xorg forks & execs xkbcomp: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/tree/xkb/ddxLoad.c http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/tree/xkb/ddxList.c It is not pretty in the slightest, and replacing the fork/exec with calls to libxkbcommon has been on our todo list for quite a while. -- -Alan Coopersmith- alan.coopersmith@xxxxxxxxxx Oracle Solaris Platform Engineering: X Window System _______________________________________________ xorg@xxxxxxxxxxx: X.Org support Archives: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg Info: http://lists.x.org/mailman/listinfo/xorg Your subscription address: list-xorg@xxxxxxxxxxx
