It looks like X tries to use /dev/ttyv1 which is occupied by getty:

#2 Updated by phma over 4 years ago

Same problem with kdm. This happened after leaving the computer up for about
56 days, not doing anything that would obviously mess with kdm or the
keyboard. It was working before.

#3 Updated by polachok over 4 years ago

phma:
I don't think your problem is related.
Mine was solved by using ttyv8 line in /etc/ttys instead of pkgsrc script, by the way.

#4 Updated by phma over 4 years ago

I started kdm from /etc/ttys instead of from /etc/rc.conf. That fixed it.
Presumably it's setting the keyboard of its own tty now.
