The CLI and GUI both use different ways to control the mouse.
- For the CLI (runlevel 3, no GUI) the gpm package is needed (and might need to be configured).
- The GUI does not use gpm it uses X to load the driver.
But the issue is with the cursor..it seems to b stuck in the same place evn the the mouse isnt't there.
What could be the issue?
It seems that your mouse problem is GUI related. Without knowing which type of mouse (wired, wireless, USB etc) you have and which DM (KDE/Gnome/???) you use it is rather hard to help you.
Is CentOS installed in a virtual machine?
Maybe too obvious, but: Are you sure the mouse itself isn't faulty? Assuming a wired mouse: Is the cable plugged in correctly?
