I compiled GPM and it looks like its 'behaving'. Can move the mouse
and see the pointer move also. But still those letters. Also if i
happen to run w3m for reading the BLFS book, and i want to press a
mouse button at the same time, w3m gets killed.

/proc/interrupts shows: (was nicely aligned in monospace font)

I have no running/loaded modules, so lsmod shows nothing.

So i guess my mouse doesn't show. Or it's those uhci and ehci drivers
for usb that represent my mouse. EMU10K1 is my soundcard chip btw.
