    Default GPS support?

    Hi, I am a little new to Linux and was wondering if Backtrack has support for GPS, like for geotagging APs? I've wondered through the applications a little bit, but didnt find anything that looked like it had to do with GPS. If there is, I plan to use this GPS kit, and install it internally in my laptop.

    Kismet has support for GPS and should be able to tell you where you where when you located the AP(s), providing that you use a supported device that is.

    This is correct... also you might want to Google around for GPSD.

    You're going to try to squeeze that card inside a machine that barely has space for it's own boards?

    I want to see pictures when it's done.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Oh, it will fit. It's going to require quite a bit of hacking and soldering though.

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Suprisingly, it has a lot of open space inside for you to cram things inside. There is one eeepc 4gb ive seen that has 2 extra usb hubs, GPS, another card reader, an extra 4GB internal memory, draft-n wifi, an FM transmitter, a touchscreen, and a temperature sensor. Its all connected to a 10 dip-switch held in the memory access panel so that they can be turned on and off easily.

    These are pictures of the mentioned eeepc. Not mine.

    for what it's worth I've had GpsDrive working on BackTrack before. I believe it's also installed as default on another Live PenTesting Distro, which name escapes me at the moment...

    I have gpsd working in backtrack now, it's not a big deal. Though my usb gps is flaking out now. That's not any fault of gpsd or backtrack, the iGPS-360 just isn't the greatest gps out there. Though I've got to say, it's done a pretty good job over the years. It's been cooked in the summers sitting on my dash with almost constant direct sun light, and frozen in the winters. I think I picked it up with streets and trips 2003, so that probably makes it one of the oldest pieces of electronics I own.

    I had GpsDrive installed on BT3b, although I had to use v2.09. The latest version gave me a lot of trouble dealing with gcc and such (common Slackware issue).
