Hi - just a little note to say that I solved the problem with getting X to work with gpm still running. You may recall I posted, complaining that I had to kill gpm before I could get X to run. I solved the problem by changing the mouse device over to /dev/ttyS0 (whereas before it was /dev/cua0). Now things work fine! Am I right in thinking that the cua devices are now obsolete and that ttyS devices are the way to go? Mark.
