How do you mean "talk"?? For mapping, GPSdrive is a great program, and I'm sure there are others. If you want to run NTP off of it, as long as it's a NMEA compatible device, just plug it in, and tell NTP to use it.

Might also help to mention something about the hardware (USB? Serial?), and what version/distro of Linux you're using, and tell us more about what you're trying to do...

First, you do realize you have to be OUTSIDE for it to work, right? GPS signals rarely are strong enough to get picked up indoors. If it's a USB device, when you plug it in, you'll have to configure your GPS software (whatever it is), to read FROM that device. Chances are, it'll be something like /dev/ttyUSB0, etc. Look at the output of dmesg, then plug the device in, and look again. You should see what device it shows up as.

Ok...you need to install the mysql client libraries. There is alot of info on Google on how to do this.

Yes, we're trying to, now aren't we?

Did you read the man page on gpsprof? Specifically where you have to set the baud rate of the incoming device, which you're not doing. Also, I mentioned gpsdrive in my first post, which IMO, is a great way of determining if your GPS unit is working at all.

And have you checked the website? http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/suppor...loadCenter.jsp has drivers for Holux GPS receivers for Linux, which come with instructions.

Did you get the drivers/software from Holux, as I suggested in my last post?
