I tried putting the file you had attached in /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ but that
didn't work. So I created an xorg.conf using `Xorg -configure' and made the

multiple times, it _still_ does not work.

Hmm... haldaemon and messagebus daemons are running?
Can you run:
	service haldaemon status
	service messagebus status

Also, run
grep xkb_options /var/log/Xorg.0.log

It should say something like
	(**) Option "xkb_options" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
severals times. If not 10-keymap-custom.fdi is not loaded.

grep xkb_rules /var/log/Xorg.0.log
This should say
	(**) Option "xkb_rules" "evdev"
If not, you do not use evdev but probably kbd.

Everything seems to be working just fine.

$ service haldaemon status
hald (pid 1460) is running...

$ messagebus status
dbus-daemon (pid 2000 1420) is running...

$ grep xkb_options /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Try ctrl-alt-backspace before login (where display manager kdm or gdm ask
you for user and password). Try changing gdm with kdm:
	echo "DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE">  /etc/sysconfig/desktop
	init 3; sleep 5; init 5
(be sure kdm is installed: yum -y install kdm).

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace *works* in the GDM login screen. Hence I did not try KDM.

This looks like an XFCE problem. Since WindowMaker doesn't really set anything unless I ask it to, I would imagine XFCE does something which persists even after I logout. And hence I can't use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace even in WindowMaker. Does that sound reasonable?

Open source is the future. It sets us free.
