Description of problem:
gpm-1.20 seems to not support wheel patch, which is usually required
for modern mice.

I found this problem compiling AlmusVCU, which require gpm with mouse
wheel patch installed: after some compiling it turns out with error
complaining gpm module needs to be patched with mouse wheel patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download AlmusVCU (http://www.ludd.luth.se/~torger/almusvcu.html)
2.Add to Makefile gpm support
3.compile AlmusVCU using "Make"command

Actual Results:  after some compiling it turns out with error
complaining gpm module needs to be patched with mouse wheel patch

Expected Results:  It should complete compilation if mouse wheel patch
would be installed

Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.


NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.

Closing per previous comment and lack of response.  Also note that FC1 and FC2
are no longer supported even by Fedora Legacy.
