I'm just trying to find a version I can download and install
What is the recomended version of gpsd to go with Kismet
I tried 2.37 the newest and that fails as well
I am looking for one to install but I dont know much about compiling from source so it is hard.
*end of rant*

What gpsd version will work
Where can I get it? - (.deb packages are that best)
