i noticed gpm will conflict with xsun* (told during dselect) therefore i
marked gpm for purge so i'm pretty sure my system doesn't have gpm installed.
nevertherless i tried to double-confirm myself:
kuman@jsbsl:~$ dpkg --print-avail gpm | less

Description: General Purpose Mouse Interface
This package provides a daemon that listens to the mouse when the
console is displayed, and delivers them to applications.
The default when no application is running is to emulate
"selection", i.e. allow cut-and-paste with the mouse on the
console the same way as under X.
kuman@jsbsl:~$ su - root
jsbsl:~# dpkg -r gpm
dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove gpm which isn't installed.
hmmm...what is happening now? i was told to stop gpm, how exactly can i do
that? again, helps is much needed to get my X up.
