  • gpsd
    GpsDrive uses the gpsd program to talk to the GPS. You should install that first.

  • Anonymous svn access:
    You can now access the latest gpsdrive sources with SVN with:

    svn co gpsdrive-trunk

    After the SVN snapshot is downloaded, please run in the gpsdrive directory:

    cd gpsdrive-trunk
    mkdir -p build
    cd build
    cmake ..

    You have to do this only the first time, at a later time you need only to do:

    cd gpsdrive-trunk
    svn upate
    cd build
    (and as root): make install

    Be warned, the SVN version may be broken and badly tested. Anyway, if you send me patches, diff them against the latest SVN before you send it.
