Description Andrew Bartlett 2001-01-06 23:57:33 EST
This is the gpm owned part of my fix to bug 22810 and bug 23499.  

It uses a new entry in the configuraion file to define the location of the
mouse, rather than using /dev/mouse which is missing on devfs.

gpm 1.19.3-7 and later read a DEVICE line (if present) from 
/etc/sysconfig/mouse, and use that as an argument to gpm's -m option.

mouseconfig-4.21 and later write this line, defaulting to "/dev/mouse", the 
symlink it makes to the actual device.
