Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-19 05:20:35 UTC
Change your /dev/mouse to point to /dev/input/mice instead of /dev/psaux.

Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-02-19 15:25:04 UTC
Shouldn't gpm default to /dev/input/mice if it exists?

Comment 3 tom 2004-02-19 22:27:39 UTC
this worked
cd /dev/
mv psaux psaux-orig
ln -s /dev/input/mice psaux

/etc/rc.d/init.d/gpm start

THANKs
