 I'm using the pengutronix ptxdist BSP for the mini2440 and i wanted
to set up an xwindow system.

but got this error.. when trying to start Xorg.. i have enabled
anxkeymap entry in menuconfig but i cant find a keymap   entry in
eithermenuconfig or kernelconfig.doing a ptxdist clean xorg and then
ptxdist go doesnt help either.. asin ptxdist says that theres nothing
to be done for world.
