I know, this has been posted a lot. I have Slackware 3.0.
After reading the howto's and all of your posts, my mouse is still
messed up. My mouse doesn't work outside of X (my X is messed too)
I amting it with test-mouse, and I get the familiar "pointer stays
at the edge of screen/doesn't move in correct directions" problem.
I only have a ps2 driver compiled in the kernel.
gpm isn't running.
During bootup the kernel says the mouse is detected and the driver
is installed, blah blah.
