    Default hmm

    well i booted the computer with the gps device connected then i followed the instructions on the gps drive site for starting gpsd i pointed it at the TTY the demesg gave me... hmm i havn't dont it in a few weeks trying to remember later i will try to do it again and post the log here. i gotta run in a bit and dont have the time right now.
    i also know that ive tried to configure it with the script in gpsdrive but that didn't work either. when the computer boots up the device turns on and the light blinks like it does when it acquires the satellites so the device is functional its just a matter of getting it to interface the gpsd.
    if one of you has a link for how to do this that would be awesome i did a search and didn't see one. thanx

    gpsd: opening GPS data source at '/dev/tty/USB0'
    gpsd: device open failed: Not a directory
    gpsd: GPS device /dev/tty/USB0 nonexistent or can't be read
    Try:
    Code:
    gpsd /dev/tts/USB0
    If it is still giving you problems about 2D 3D - LOCK in kismet you might try this.

    Far as a script to incorporate gpsd and kismet I currently use something similar to this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    echo " Copying kismet configuration to location " 
    cp /mnt/sdb1_removable/kismet.conf /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf
    echo " Setting up Prism 2 card with correct drivers "
    pccardctl eject ; rmmod orinoco_cs ; rmmod orinoco ; rmmod hermes ; modprobe hostap_cs ; pccardctl insert ;
    echo " Loaded "
    
    echo " Change MAC to another random MAC address "
    ifconfig wlan0 down ; macchanger -r wlan0 ; ifconfig wlan0 up ;
    sleep 1
    echo " Starting Kismet & GPS "
    echo " Starting GPSD 2.34 USB"
    gpsd /dev/tts/USB0
    start-kismet-ng
    sleep 2
    echo " Killing GPSD "
    killall gpsd
    ech0 " Safely remove Card "
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    sleep 1
    echo " tar.gz Kismet Files "
    kistar
