This is only when you move the mouse, right?
but after I make
and I try to test the mouse, nothing happens.
I've had two or three occasions lately where the test within gpmconfig
fails, but after finishing gpmconfig and gpm starts, the mouse works.
What I'm saying is "don't trust the test within gpmconfig".
This is a mouse with a scroll wheel and a ps/2 connector, right? It's
not a USB mouse
You might try a different protocol; when you're asked by gpmconfig for
the protocol type "help", and you'll get a list of ones you can try.
Also, you might need to install a kernel module; run "modconf" and look
for any mouse-y looking modules, such as "mousedev" or "psmouse", and
try installing them to see if that makes any difference. I have both of
these modules in my /etc/modules on this particular box. (I don't know
for sure if they're needed, and I'm too lazy to test at the moment, but
they are there, so give 'em a try.)
