Have you already installed 'GPM'? It should ask you some questions
after it's installation. There you've to specify the "Repeat
type". You can run /usr/sbin/gpmconfig again or edit /etc/gpm.conf
manually. See 'man gpm' for more information on GPM and the repeat
type. Set the repeat type to 'raw' - this seems to work good. Set the
mouse protocol to 'ps2'; some so called "PS2 mice", e.g. the Logitech
Cordless Wheel mouse, needs 'imps2' as protocol.

Got it working in console mode?

Then specifiy /dev/gpmdata as your mouse while the X configuration
(XF86Setup, xf86config).
