Ok, sorry, just tell me to read the wiki next time !! :-) Well, it is working on 6.10 now. I suspected gpsd was working because gpsdrive ONLY works when gpsd is running. I questioned the client program because it seemed there was perhaps a parsing error when it only prints out gpsd /dev and not the full device name. telnet localhost 2947 shows nothing. But, the proof is that a .gps file was created when I started the client and that same file is being updated every two minutes. Ok, so it works on Ubuntu 6.06 and 6.10 only so far ????
