Hi, ALL,
Today I needed to reboot my laptop from Windows to Linux. I did that couple of weeks ago without any problems, but apparently not today.

After long boot up and successful login (it was stuck on fixing the /tmp directory) I issued "startx" and got following (copying from console):

Quote:

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Error: Cannot open "/tmp/server-0.xkm" to write keyboard description
> Exiting
XKB: Failed to compile keymap
Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.

Fatal server error


Any idea on how do I fix such a problem?

Thank you.

ALL,
When the boot holds, on the screen I see following:

Code:

/tmp: correcting mode


Does anybody knows what it means?

Also, I just checked this:

Code:

ls -la /
........
drwxr-xr-x 6 mysql mysql 4096 Sep 29 14:44 tmp
.......


Any idea what went wrong?

Thank you.

Hi, Jean-Paul,
The problem is that this is a dual-boot machine and I will need to go back and forth between Windows and Gentoo.
And it actually means that something is resetting access rights to /tmp either on shutdown or early on start-up.

That message shows up after

Code:

Starting mysql


Could someone please help me figure this out?

Thank you.

Moreover Jean Paul's suggestion is a workaround, not a solution, because on the next reboot I will have exactly the same problem.

So, once again - anybody knows how to fix it?

Thank you.

Wild guess: Change assignment of tmpdir in /etc/mysql/my.cnf to something other than "/tmp/" and reset owner:group of /tmp to root:root?

Fitzcarraldo,
No, unfortunately that didn't fix the boot process. I'm still stuck on the same message.

Any other idea?

Thank you.
