I compiled gpm-1.20.6 before reading the hint in the svn version of the book. I am using LFS 6.6rc. I was wondering whether the hint still applies to the newer versions as it was last updated in 2006. I can't seem to get the mouse to work. The hint says I should recompile gpm using --without curses and then recompiling ncurses. It also says that gpm won't work with UTF8. This is my second attempt with BLFS. The first time I was using LFS 6.1 supplied with the livecd and BLFS 6.3. The mouse worked as soon as it was compiled in that version.
