Angry Mouse issue again!!!

Hello people,

My mouse is really screwed up after a swaret update!

Even from the terminal where the mouse cursor shows up it only moves vertically.

I do not think its the etc/X11/xorg.conf because everthing seems okay ....

More than likely it gpm ( maybe swaret overwrote your gpm config file?).
Open a console and type (as root):

go to settings-->mouse config

you can reconfigure gpm from here

p.s. be careful pulling from -current as some things dependency wise are not there
( I upgraded Xorg from -current and I had to compile glibc-2.3.4 as a dependency).
