Looks like you have a serial mouse. I forgot that the problem is with PS/2
and other bus mice only. With such a mouse you still have to use the
repeater mode or kill gpm before starting X because the mouse device can
only be opened by one process at a time. That restriction does not exist
with serial mice.
