Yesterday I've compilled xorg 7.0-r1 and after typing startx I get this message and it takes about 30 seconds to start the X Server.

Code:
> Warning:          Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but <RALT> has 2 symbols
>                   Ignoring extra symbols
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server

I've already read several posts on this issue, but didn't find anything helpful at all.
I am using UTF-8 and for that reason my system was compiled with this use flags USE="unicode userlocales nls" (of course there are lot more...)
I've read this could be the reason, so here is what I've done to get utf-8.
I followed this tutorial http://de.gentoo-wiki.com/Utf8 its german...
My /etc/locales.build looks like this
Code:

en_US/ISO-8859-1
en_US.UTF-8/UTF-8
ja_JP.EUC-JP/EUC-JP
ja_JP.UTF-8/UTF-8
ja_JP/EUC-JP
en_HK/ISO-8859-1
en_PH/ISO-8859-1
de_DE/ISO-8859-1
de_DE@euro/ISO-8859-15
es_MX/ISO-8859-1
fa_IR/UTF-8
fr_FR/ISO-8859-1
fr_FR@euro/ISO-8859-15
it_IT/ISO-8859-1C
de_AT.UTF-8/UTF-8
de_AT/ISO-8859-1
de_AT/UTF-8


The Kernel is compiled with only NLS UTF8 and Codepage 850 support for the native language stuff.

/etc/env.d/02locale looks like this
Code:

LANG="de_AT.utf8"
LANGUAGE="de_AT.utf8"
LC_ALL="de_AT.utf8"


Do anyone have tipps, or even a solution for me?

I ran into the same problem. It seems to be that on unicode systems with modular Xorg, some wms/des/whatevers start moaning if some eastern fonts are not installed. On the fvwm forums, somebody suggested to use the cjk use-flag for xorg; the 'Migrating to Modular X howto' describes what happened to this flag for modular Xorg.
The solution is to emerge media-fonts/font-daewoo-misc, media-fonts/font-isas-misc, and media-fonts/font-jis-misc.

I have the same problem but when trying to emerge media-fonts/font-daewoo-misc, media-fonts/font-isas-misc, and media-fonts/font-jis-misc I get the following message:

Code:
mimosinnet bin # emerge -av font-jis-misc

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "font-jis-misc" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- media-fonts/font-jis-misc-1.0.0 (masked by: ~x86 keyword)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.


I therefore assume that these packages are marked as "unstable". Should I unmask the packages?

Thanks!

Install the package "intlfonts". It'll fix the problem.

I don't know why X wants to have those asian chasets with UTF-8 locales.
