Unless you don't use the console at all I would recommend using gpm in
repeater mode. If nothing else because you have to configure your mouse
only once. You can setup X with a standard MouseSystems three button
mouse on /dev/gpmdata in any case. And if you change from PS/2 to a serial
mouse or vice versa, you just run gpmconfig and are done.
