I cannot run X.

after startx, I have this message in dmesg:

atkbd.c: unknown key released (transalted set 2, code 0x7a on isa00060/serio0).
atbkd.c: This is an XFree86 bug. It shouldn't access hardware directly.

Anyone knows if it is actually a XFree86 bug ?
And how to fix it ?

/var/log/XFree86.0.log gives me no error.

I've googled around and it seems that many people have this message, but they can start X. Not me !

Please help ! I need my gnome !
If it is not the right place to ask this question, please tell me where I can get more information.


I'm using Debian Sid, kernel 2.6.4, XFree86 4.3.0-7
