The general purpose mouse server, or gpm, allows you to use the mouse
to cut and paste text from the screen.  It also acts as a mouse
server for applications running on the Linux console, such as the
Midnight Commander file manager.
NOTE:  This program may cause problems when you start X on systems
that use a bus mouse (not common).  If you get an 'unable to open
mouse device' error from X, disable /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm.
