I get errors about XKB configuration on RH Fedora Core 2 which 
uses a different X package: xorg-x11. This is a bit more recent 
than your X packages, so I am not sure that using a fresher 
version of X always helps.

I just close the dialogue box and things seem to work fine.
Can you do that? Or does X just die and refuse to run things?

I'm not sure. I had some very old files called .xmodmap-something
in my home directory. I moved them away to get rid of the error
message. But on a fresh install, I don't think you would have
those files.

I would consider rebuilding X a last resort, myself.

Does SuSE have a bug-tracker? If so, I would look there.
Failing that, there are SuSE mailing lists whose archives
you could search. 

Or someone on this list may have SuSE 9.1, Gnome, and a
solution to your problem.

I know that a friend told me last night that SuSE 9.1
is mostly fine with Gnome; but that an upgrade from SuSE
9.0 to SuSE 9.1 could cause Gnome troubles. It was
intermittent, happening only on some machines. And it
didn't happen if you had never used Gnome in 9.0. But
if you had used Gnome even once on 9.0 and then upgraded
to 9.1, there was a chance of something odd happening.
In his case, it seemed to be related to GConf errors.

I _presume_ these (yours and his) are two separate issues. 
But I don't know.
