gpm won't let my mouse/keyboard work in slackware
I just installed slackware 10.2, everything installed fine, but when I get to the login prompt my keyboard does not work. I searched around and found that gpm might be the problem. I could not figure out the proper way to fix this so I just booted into knoppix and I renamed rc.gpm so that it could not be loaded. After doing this my keyboard works, but then when I got to startx it no longer works. I have tried starting gpm and then starting x but it still does not work. I have used this same mouse and keyboard with an installation of slackware before but I don't know why it's not working this time. I may have used a different mouse driver before I'm using the imps/2 driver now. My mouse is a usb mouse and I have a ps/2 keyboard.
