Description of problem:
'gpm' package provides a file '/etc/sysconfig/gpm' and in it
there are lines like
But looking closer at /etc/init.d one can find there:
[ -e /etc/sysconfig/gpm ] && . /etc/sysconfig/gpm
if [ -f "$MOUSECFG" ]; then
echo $"(no mouse is configured)"
and in $MOUSECFG, which happens to be written by system-config-mouse
so those from /etc/sysconfig/gpm are totally ineffective and
there is not even a comment there to alert a user to this
detail if s/he would try to do any adjustments by editing that
file. Well, yes, one things remains:
# Additional options for gpm (e.g. acceleration), device
but that is about it.
there is no more gpm file now in the latest version.
