An updated libxklavier package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libxklavier library provides a high-level API for the X Keyboard Extension (XKB) that allows extended keyboard control. This library supports X.Org and other commercial implementations of the X Window system. The library is useful for creating XKB-related software, such as layout indicators. This update fixes the following bug:
- Due to the way how the NoMachine NX Free Edition server implements XInput support, an attempt to log into the server using an NX or VNC client triggered an XInput error that was handled incorrectly by the libxklavier library. Consequently, the GNOME Settings Daemon (gnome-settings-daemon) was terminated with signal 6 (SIGABRT). To resolve this problem, the XInput error handling routine in the libxklavier library has been modified. The library now ignores this error and gnome-settings-daemon runs correctly under these conditions.
All users of libxklavier are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
