I have done that, in many diferent ways:
- killing X and gpm, restarting gpm : nothing
-changing /etc/X11/default-display-manager to start in console after reboot, 
then killing gpm, and making gpmconfig using diferent configurations (imps2, 
ps2, autops2; repeat_type raw, ms3, none): nothing

I get this information related whit gpm 

$ ps -ef | grep gpm
root       397     1  0 18:00 ?        00:00:00 gpm
root       928   926  0 22:37 pts/1    00:00:00 grep gpm

$ ls -l /dev/gpm*
srwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            0 may  9 18:00 /dev/gpmctl
prwxr-xr-x    1 root     root            0 may  9 18:00 /dev/gpmdata

I changed those x permissions on /dev/gpmdata (i thought it could make a 
difference, but nothing)

$ ls -l /dev/psaux
crw-------    1 root     root      10,   1 may  9 22:37 /dev/psaux

(I dont know what the c means)

$ ls -l /var/run/gpm.pid
-rw-------    1 root     root            4 may  9 18:00 /var/run/gpm.pid

$ gpm -v
gpm 1.19.6, Thu Oct  4 00:21:21 CEST 2001

I really dont know what the problem is.

I installed mousedev with modconf, but it didnt change my X config file, it is 
still /dev/psaux. 

The thing is: 
/dev/psaux is the correct device
gpm.conf is OK
files related with gpm  are OK

but gpm doesnt work! what am I doing wrong?
