When you say you have "no mouse" do you mean you are not getting any
mouse events? Or, do you mean that you do not see the mouse cursor? Or
both? Normally, you have to draw the cursor your self when you are using
a video device directly. 

Also, when you say "gpm" are you really talking about "gdm"?
