Tonight i'm working on cross-compiling to try to understand and fix many PRGS of GPE and GTK.
Hope could help. laugh.gif
Let me know related issues.
BYEZ!

P.S. Remember to install pcre_5.0_armv5tel.ipk from the PDAXROM FEED before gpsdrive

Cool. I wish I had a GPS unit.
What is gpe-shield? Googling it gives me squat.

GPE-Shield is a firewall manager for GPE, logically you have to install iptables first otherwise it segfaults.
Look at gpsd support first buying a GPS gadget, as GPSDRIVE is GPSD daemon based.
Have fun!

GPSDRIVER after 3-5 seconds go to Segmentation fault.

UHM.... strange i installed it with GPSD and i played for 1 or 2 minuts.
I made GPSD start from GPSDRIVE and all worked.
After starting GPSD the arrow as changed simulating the search of a track.
Try to install GPSD too and make it start disrectly from GPSDRIVE.
Let me know, this and GPE PIM is one of the thing i want the Zaurus to run.
It' s necessary for me. Saturday afternoon i will work on this features
BYEZ!

I got it! You run as root and me not. This is the difference.
Do not tell me why but if you run as run it segfaults as your behaviour.
Try xterm and run it as a Normal User, it will not segfaults and will run gpsd wihout any problems.
This is how you can do:
1) xterm
2) export DISPLAY=:0
3) su - NormalUser -c gpsdrive
4) After that i saw gpsd looking for devices in xterm and no segfaults
5) Probably is something related on permmissions, i suppose or GPSD called as root, as it segfaults calling the daemon.
Consider i' m running all as normal user to not do errors corrupting the ROM packages.
Tomorrow i will repackage GPE PIM and all GPE related stuff working on the Family 0.8.3 sources where i found the GPSDRIVE source, I.E. FM SRC 0.8.3
If they segfault on the import again i will change the file-selection call to another from programs working.
THX for your interest and help, bye. laugh.gif

The other thing was I had to do a chmod a+rw /dev/ttyS3 (the device for my CF GPS) before it could read from the GPS.


So, not nice but certainly useable.

Now I just need to get the USB networking running so I can download the maps while the GPS is plugged in...

(Of course the CD is nowhere to be found...)
