It's there, look again.

Also try this

Code:
/usr/sbin/gpm -m /dev/mouse -t imps2
then change xorg.conf

If you did not configure gpm at setup, there is a rc.gpm-sample that you can use.

Code:
install -m0755 /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm-sample /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm
Then edit it to your needs.

no there is no /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm
so I looked in the package gpm comes in
nether is there a /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm-sample
/etc/rc.d/rc.gpm is a generated file made by running /usr/sbin/mouseconfig
I didn't install this system by running setup from a boot media
I'm not sure I need to change /etc/X11/xorg.conf
X has gotten pretty tolerant of misconfiguration over the years
time to give it the 3 finger salute and find out

Try running mouseconfig as root, it will give an option to both select your type of mouse AND run gpm at startup
