I start manualy the xserver (startx) and when I shut down it, my gpm start
to refuse to copy & paste on the console (tty).

I solve the problem with a fallback to gpm-1.17.5-3.i386.rpm

Note: I have the Red Hat 6.1 distribution.

what X server / Video card are you using?  What type of mouse do you use?
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-02-03 10:52:59 EST
can't duplicate with the 6.2 gpm 1.18.1 and a PS/2 style mouse.  Assume problem
is fixed or user error.
