6 In my case 'reemerge' didn't work. Files in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb were NOT
7 updated, neither .cfg0000_* files were created. After much talking with one
8 of the developers of xkbcomp, we tracked the problem and now I have X 4.3
9 with a correct latin american keyboard layout.
11 The solution was: emerge -C xfree, DELETE /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb, emerge xfree
12 (fortunately I did emerge -b the first time :-)
14 Now I only need to bring back my AA fonts.
16 Best regards,
