#259 XDarwin quits on Panther

Causes Crash
X server (105)

I have tried to run opebn office and message that install was
successful but when I try to run it X darwin quits .
The error message is:
""Mac OS X Version 10.3.3 (Build 7F44)

XDarwin 1.2.0

XFree86 Version 4.3.0 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 27 February 2003
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your hardware is
newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ\)
Operating System: Darwin Apple Computer, Inc.

Fatal server error:
Could not find keymapping file USA.keymapping.

Quitting XDarwin...
-bash: no job control in this shell
koolG4:~ dapoladimeji$

waiting for X server to begin accepting connections .
Obviously on the Powerbook G4 laptop there is a keyboard. I am at
a loss as to what to do.
Any suggedstions?
Open office support say it is a problem with X Darwin.

    The problem is the XFree86 4.3.0 is not supported on Panther. You need
    to download and install XFree86 4.4.0.

    Apparently xDarwin does not work in panther on powerbooks... there is a
    link from the osxgnu website to a patch for a required patch for
    powerbooks, the problem that is that links on the site don't work or the
    files don't exist on any of the mirrors. You can check back at osxgnu.org
    to see if the file is there yet.
