I jst went through a similar problem with my Micron PC:

1) You don't have to re-install gpm, you can use ... a command whose
name I don't remember (something like gpmconfig - see /etc/gpm.conf - it
is mentioned there)

2) You want to tell it that the mouse is on /dev/mouse, and (in my case)
also tell it that it is a "ps2" style mouse (This is even the case if
you have a m$ mouse - don't be fooled. It seems to want a ps2 mouse if
it is on a mouse port, no matter what)

3) restart gpm, and run mev to test your mouse.

Hope this helps :)
