Well... I had (before removing gpm altogether) the same config as
Kerstin. However, and this is _why_ I removed gpm, I couldn't get my
ps/2 wheel mouse working... I had a look at man gpm and it says that
this setting works fot 3buttons mouses... Now, my mouse has 4 bouttons 
+ the wheel, which infact make it a 6-button mouse. I have 2

First, is it possible to have gpm working and X getting
Button4 and Button5 events (the ones produced by the wheel)? I tried
to put type=raw in gpmconfig but it didn't help).

Second, anybody knows a way to use all the 4 buttons? I know that X
standard says that there are at most 5 buttons on a mouse, but it
should be possible to configure the extra button to produce a
KeyPressed event, say binding it to the Alt key...
