Re: gpm and X and mouse (fwd)

It's been three computers and four mice already, and I've never 
had this working, so I'm curious if anyone has got it to work and 
under what circumstances, so that maybe the next time I spend money 
I can make duplication of these circumstances a consideration.

I am having the same problem with the mouse pointer in X. I'll have to try this when I get home sounds like a bug to me.
