I have looked around the posts and searched a bit and found a few messages dealing with gettting GPS to work with the Zaurus.
Here's what I have.
Haicom HI-303CF Compact Flash GPS Receiver.
Currently I am using Openzaurus 3.3.5 though I also have Cacko rom also.
I have tried many of the suggetions listed in the posts and keep hitting a brick wall.
I have tried qpegps, zgps, qtgps, as well as various version of GPSD. I have tried to find a current version of serial_cs.o that is compatiable with the 2.4.18 kernel, thoug I cannot find one. The version I have gives a mismatch error as its compiled for 2.4.6
I guess what I need is either a how to or some help in getting the different bits together and I'll write a how to. Is
If anyoune could provide some assistance I would be very grateful.

Use wget, as browser D/Ling (even Opera) will corrupt the file...
Unzip it and put it in:
At least that's where it works on my 5600.

Thanks for the fast reply.
I have downloaded that version, though I put it in
As the dir you suggest is not there. Should I create it and then place it.

Yes--I think I had to create the char and char/pcmcia directories.
I can't remeber where I found the reference that instructed me to do so, but modprobe wouldn't find the module until I did. However, insmod seems to work irrespective of where you put serial_cs.o, as long as you tell it explicitly where it is.
Remember to insert your GPS card after serial_cs is loaded, and at that point the card will be properly recognized but suspended. Then cardctl resume will have you in business. Make sure you tell gpsd to look at /dev/ttyS3!
