Dear Mr. Rubini:

Thank you very much for your fast reply to my problems.
I have got a copy of gpm-1.20.1.tar.gz already. 
After the compilations, the executions on console
of mouse-test gives me error of undefined symbol on "Gpm_get_console";
and mev has error of undefined symbol on "gpm_report".
Both are relocation error. 

I believe the "libgpm.so.1.19.0" has been updated already.
It is quite strange how come the libgpm.so has a version of
"1.19.0", instead of "1.20.1".

I might try some earlier releases later on.
Thank you again for your kindness to give assistances.
