gpm screwing up X
Greetings: God bless you.
I got snagged by the default installation of gpm on one the two
SS20s on which I installed potato/sparc today: X would not
come up, as in
with a fix offered in
I did this, and it still would not work, until I deleted, by hand,
since dselect purge did not, /dev/gpmdata and /etc/gpm.conf.
Then, after exiting X, I saw:
"Cannot open /dev/gpmdata, error 2. Trying /dev/sunmouse".
I suppose I could make it look directly for /dev/sunmouse,
if I knew what configuration file it's using. I looked
for it in /etc/X11/XF86Config, but that file doesn't exit,
even though there is a link to it:
# ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config
.... /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config -> /etc/X11/XF86Config
I'm considering filing a wishlist BR so that gpm is not
selected by default during installation.
