I installed gpsdrive from the unstable feed on SD
but when I launch it, it asks for libart-lgpl.
Ok, i install it manually, but now it asks for libpcre, which I can't find in /usr/lib nor in the feed...
Any suggestion?

Sorry, just solved! :-)
The package required was pcre_5.0_armv5tel.ipk

So it actually works nicely on an SL-6000? (I'm the creator of the package, that's why I'm asking.)

I haven't tried with my bluetooth gps yet but in demo mode it seems to work fine. The only thing that should be fixed is the library dependence, libart-lgpl and libart-lgpl.
In these days I'll try with the bt gps and I'll tell you.

I want to use mysql with gpsdrive, i've mysql and i've created geoinfo database,
how can I set up gpsdrive script for using mysql ???
Zumi
According to the man page of "gpsdrive" (not included in the ipk):
QUOTE
-q Disables SQL support. Only usefull if you have SQL support compiled in.
So, remove the -q from the /usr/local/bin/gpsdrive-run.sh script. It's in the end of the last line.

MySql support worked for me when I tried, but the queries were too slow on a C700.

You really should read that manual page if you want to fiddle with the program.

Yes Zumi, sorry for my ignorance i read the manual;

I've download from the site gpsdrive-2.10pre2.tar.gz (not from the cvs)
i see the database from the CVS if different from the version on the site. Your CVS need some other tables for using mysql as POI , STREETS and so on
I've compiled http://www.gpsdrive.cc/gpsdrive-2.10pre2.tar.gz on my LInux Pc and i see this version only uses waypoints table so it will be more usable on Zaurus.
Please can you compile this version for Zaurus so i can try to use it on My SL-6000

Let me know,
sincerly Gabriele
Zumi
Gpsdrive stable and pre versions are pretty old. The code is under cleaning and documentation, that's why there's no new release from it. But, apart from that, there's a lot of fixes in the CVS that makes Gpsdrive more usable (for example my patch for map importing biggrin.gif).

And I don't really understand your problem about the CVS version makes two additional tables. Have you got any record in those tables? I don't think so. You think that it slows down things when the program do queries from these tables? Turn off POI and Streets checkbox in the program.

So, I don't think I should bother compiling older versions. However, if I will have time and desire to compile a new CVS version, I will do that.

Ps: Please don't PM your posts to me, just post them here.

They were new features, they weren't tested correctly when I built the package from the CVS. As the map grid, what you can toggle with "G", but it's not remembered.
