Feels somewhat comforting that your usb dongle didn't work with
gpsd either... But, of course it would be good if it worked ;-)

I think it is more comforting that it DOES work with gpsd under
Rein :)

It will only be comforting when someone discerns why
it is inconsistently supported across Linux distros
and then comes up with a solution.

It is a royal pain to deal with such inconsistencies
in devices that really should be OS & distro transparent.
