i have a question concerning gpm.  first i have to say that i am connectet to 
the internet via aol. i download the the files to a windows partition, then 
change to lunar...copy the files to /var/spool/lunar and finally type lin.
first i downloaded perl...and installed it. everything went fine.
the second package i wanted to install was gpm because of the mouse support. 
i said yes to the first question "  ..invoke gpm at boot time..".
unfortunately i forgot to download a neccesary file and gpm installation was 
incompete and aborted.
at next reboot i got some strange messages that not all modules could be 
loaded and the whole system remained booted in a "read-only" stage. 
my question now :
may an uncomplete gpm installation prevent the boot-process of completing the 
start process so that the root filesystem remains in a  read-ony stage.
