I have to ask why? From rpm -qi:

Description :
Gpm provides mouse support to text-based Linux applications like the
Emacs editor and the Midnight Commander file management system.

That would be runlevel 4 and lower.

So when you kick to a console to fix something you can cut and paste
w/your mouse.

not that I necessarily agree but that's probably why

Pressing ctrl-alt-f{1,2,3,4,5,6} might get you to appreciate gpm in
runlevel 5

* Tue Oct 10 2006 Petr Rockai <prockai@redhat.com> - 1.20-1-76
- align sleeps to tick boundary, should reduce cpu wakeups
on laptops, fixes #205064 (patch by Arjan van de Ven)
- disable gpm altogether in runlevel 5, it is probably not
worth the overhead considering it is barely used at all

Sigh. The constant struggle. Please turn it off again, thanks.

This bug shouldn't occur in new version of gpm.

Yes, that is the reason, why I enabled it again.
