A few days ago I got a Haicom HI-302CF GPS card, but couldn't get it to work yet (on a C760 with Cacko 1.23).

I followed the steps at http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thr...forum_id=206323, but couldn't download http://www.iral.com:88/~albertr/zaurus/misc/serial_cs.o.gz (wget stopped at "HTTP request sent, awaiting response...").

The card itself seems to work (LED off at suspend, on at resume, blinks when it (supposedly) found enough satellites), and "cat /dev/ttyS3" spits out binary data. I tried every combination of setserial and stty commands I could think of (none worked, but the binary data changes depending on the setting). "setserial /dev/ttyS3 baud_base 4800" says "Cannot set serial info: Invalid argument". So I used "setserial /dev/ttyS3 baud_base 115200 spd_cust divisor 24" instead (115200/24 is 4800), but that doesn't work either. "stty XX < /dev/ttyS3" also didn't work.

I've also tried the card in an old laptop, same results (kernel 2.4.28 and 2.6.8 or something, an old Debian installation from 1995 or so).

The only thing I couldn't try is replacing the serial_cs module, as I couldn't download it. Does anyone have that file and could upload it somewhere for me? Or does someone know what's the difference to the version in the Cacko ROM (and the one on my laptop)? Or anything else I could try?

I googled and found a (the?) file here:
http://riksun.riken.go.jp/pub/pub/Linux/sl...pcmcia/?C=S;O=D

I don't know if I can be of help, I have a billionton CF GPS, it was more or less plug and play with qpegps (old version with integrated gpsd at that time)
Did you try qpegps? which version? gpsd?

Thanks, but that looks like a normal i386 kernel module (of an even older kernel than that of the zaurus). And I couldn't really find out what's different about the version I've mentioned above, else I could perhaps try to recompile it myself.

I've tried both, though none worked - unsurprisingly, since "cat /dev/ttyS3" doesn't show useful data. Surprisingly, "gpsd -N -D 255 /dev/ttyS3" showed some useful data twice, though it appeared and disappeared without me changing anything. Quite frustrating, perhaps I should just buy another card (that needs a bit less power as well)...
