Default xkb issue

Hi,

I have a strange issue - I cannot start Xserver as a standard user.
Xorg complains about keymap (error message below). In the same time I
can start X as root. In both cases I uses the same configuration and
My CRUX is still quite blank as installed from CD (no xorg.conf then).

I have looked at wiki and /var/tmp looks fine:

bash-4.1# ls -ld /var/tmp/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 6 Nov 9 12:36 /var/tmp/

My rc.conf is quite simple.
bash-4.1# cat /etc/rc.conf
#
# /etc/rc.conf: system configuration
#

FONT=default
KEYMAP=uk
TIMEZONE=Europe/London
HOSTNAME=bizantium
SYSLOG=sysklogd
SERVICES=(net sshd crond)


I ensure that from working X command like setxkbmap -layout gb works fine.


The google is not very helpful. Any ideas?

I had the problem with something else (Mutt) and found that /tmp has
also strange privileges. I changed them I startx started to work.

bash-4.1# ls -ld /tmp/
drwxrwxrwt 6 root root 4096 Nov 9 13:36 /tmp/
