Hi all,

Just a note for anyone who uses gpsd with KisMAC. Do *not* use version 2.7. It seems the query architecture has been rewritten, and introduced a crash on repeated querying (i.e. exactly what KisMAC needs to do). Version 2.6 and 2.5 precede the bug, so either of those can be used safely. 2.6 is preferable, but you may need to add the following line to the top of gpsd.c:

#include "config.h"

To build gpsd-2.6, the sequence is as follows:

1) download and unpack source code
2) ./configure
3) edit gpsd.c to add the above line
4) make
5) sudo make install

Naturally I'll also raise this bug with the gpsd developers, but in the mean time, gpsd-2.6 seems to run well.
