Gpm is already removed.  However, it looks like you also need to rm
/dev/gpmdata.  I thought that was fixed in newer Xsun servers, but the
error you mentioned earlier in the thread tells me you have an older one.

The PEX font file Roman_M error can usually be ignored as some people
seem to get it even with appropriate fonts installed and it doesn't keep
X from running.
