I am running RH6.0 and have a normal serial logitech mouse (3 buttons)
on /dev/ttyS0 configured by mouseconfig as "Microsoft" type. (I guess it
is an alias for "ms").
In X mode my mouse works perfectly.
In text mode with the gpm daemon running, I see the mouse moving as I
want and the copy & paste feature works too.
The problem is when I run Midnight Commander. The buttons don't work (I
cannot pull down the menus, moving through the directories and so on).
Something much strange happen when using Lynx. The left button doesn't
work and pressing the middle one, lynx seems to enter in a loop moving
everywhere, changing url, saving configurations (???).
Running the mev utility I can see the mouse events are trapped correctly
(each button is identified, press and release events too, movements too
and so on).
Before using RH6.0 I have used for a few days a Debian distribution and
in that case the mouse was working correctly both in text and X modes.
Another thing I don't understand:
Running linuxconf (both in text mode or within KDE and with my mouse
moving on the screen), and quitting without making any change, it says
the status is not in sync with the current configuration and when I ask
to see what is to be updated it says that '/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S85gpm start'
is to be executed.
Is out there someone with a suggestion ?
