Re: How to create /dev/gpmdata?
when in doubt about devices consult:
Non-transient sockets and named pipes may exist in /dev. Common entries
/dev/printer socket lpd local socket
/dev/log socket syslog local socket
/dev/gpmdata socket gpm mouse multiplexer
which means that it's not really a device. I think that it is created
on the fly by bpm, you might have check the docs for gpm so that you can
configure it to use gpmdata.
running man gpm and searching for gpmdata reveals:
-Rname Causes `gpm' to act as a repeater: any mouse data
received while in graphic mode will be produced on
the fifo `/dev/gpmdata' in protocol name. In prin-
that should do it (gpm is started by /etc/init.d/gpm, I guess that's
where you would add -R flag, or perhaps /etc/gpm-root.conf, or use
gpmconfig program? I am not sure...)
