I think newer Kernels have a new input layer. I can't really tell you the
details since Linux on a PowerMac is rather new for me, but the following
line in gpm.conf works for me (PowerMac 7600, stock Debian Kernel 2.2.19):


You might also want to put

	dev/mac_hid/mouse_button2_keycode = 87
	dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode = 88
	dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation = 1

or similar into /etc/sysctl.conf to get 3-button emulation (on F11 and F12
in this case).

Best regards,
