Description of problem:
gpm appears to still use /dev/psaux to access the mouse. Under 2.6.x
kernels gpm fails because it cannot find the mouse. The references
should be changed to /dev/input/mice (or /dev/input/mouse0).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start gpm under 2.6.x kernel
2.gpm fails to start
Expected Results: gpm would work the same way as it does under 2.4.x
