gpsdrive with gpsd opens up OK under Puppy Linux 2.13 and 2.14 but since I am having difficult getting my USB-Bluetooth adapter working I have been unable to test it with my Bluetooth GPS! :-( I have copied the gpsd and gpsdrive lists in hopes someone there can assist you.
I have almost worked through the night to get gpsd to work on mandriva without success. I hope its just me and perhaps I have made a mistake somewhere but I can not get gpsd to do anything. When I launch it from within gpsdrive it works fine but if I launch it in any other way (including hotplug) it just does not work. I did notice that novell/suse may drop gpsd from the distro completely: http://blog.cynapses.org/2006/06/05/gpd-gdal-and-gpsdrive/ Slackware has problems: http://www.arcknowledge.com/gmane.comp.hardware.gps.gpsd.user/2005-12/msg00003.html Gentoo has a bug very similar to what I experience: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132288 But, I hope these are just some simple bugs. Also, none of the mentioned fixes worked for mandriva. So, has anyone (apart from Rein naturally ;-)) gotten gpsd to work ? On some other distro than ubuntu/debian ? I am just about to give up on gpsd and start writing something from scratch. But, I hope I wont have to. 73 de Per, sm0rwo
