Re: Device name for serial mouse?
I didn't answer the question you asked. Sorry!
COM1: = /dev/ttyS0
COM2: = /dev/ttyS1
^---> Note capital 'S' used here!!!!
as for the device type for gpm I don't know which mouse
you are using, "(actually one of those combo serial/PS-2 things0 "
so I can't suggest a "type" selection in gpmconfig for you.
Good luck on getting this working before Monday.
