Subject:GPS Drops Fix every few seconds
Date:18:32:19 27/08/2006

> When I'm running kismet with GPSd, the fix status thing on the UI drops to no fix every second or so, sometimes staying like that for quite a while, up to 10 seconds. Every network I log during that time gets coordinates of -90, 180 or something like that. My GPS sends NMEA packets every second, and watching it on xgps the fix comes reliably every second even kismet is reporting no fix for quite a period of time. I'm running kismet 2006.04-R1 as included in Debian Unstable. Anyone know how I could get the GPS fix stuff to work? I've tried gpsmodelock true and false, with no change. Thanks,

try an old version of gpsd, i.e. the version that was included in gpsdrive. you'll run into problems using the latest gpsd with kismet, search the forum for more info.
