Description Alexander Farley 2004-02-24 11:57:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040217

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):
gpm -1.20.1-41

How reproducible:

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
