gpm problem with kernel 2.6.3-2.1.253

HI! It's my first time here
I've tryed Fedora Core 2 Test for some days on my Acer 739tl Notebook and all goes ok!
Yesterday i've do a Yum update on ftp://ftp.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/fedora/...e/development/
and ~1400 package will be update and the kernel too from 2.6.1-1.65 to 2.6.3-2.1.253.
After this upgrade the mouse doesn't work (and touchpad too) and X with icewm (or gnome) doesn't start. In /var/log/messages I found a line that tell me OOo.oop(): [server_tools.c(76)]: could not open /dev/psaux.

I reeboot with old kernel and all go ok!
It's a kernel compiled rpm bug?

Kernel 2.6.x now uses /dev/input/mice instead of /dev/psaux.

To fix modify /etc/X11/XF86Config file:
in Section "InputDevice" chnage to this:
Code:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
and in /etc/sysconfig/gpm:
Code:
~ DEVICE = "/dev/input/mice"

In case you are wondering: what you did when it updated all of those packages was convert your system to rawhide. This is the Ultimate bleeding edge (moreso than the test releases) and has the potential to really botch your system. It is also the best way to help out Core 2 as you are able to file bug reports against the most recent packages.
