I'm having some trouble getting GPS to work on my Freerunner

Having installed gpsd and tangogps, I tried starting gpsd and got:

Starting gpsd: No /dev/ttyS3 GPS device, aborting gpsd startup. Check

and tangogps couldn't find the gps receiver

I saw this irc log:

So I tried this:

gpsd -n /tmp/nmeaNP

and tangogps could at least find the receiver, but didn't find any satellites.

Is "gpsd -n /tmp/nmeaNP" necessary on the Freerunner?

Is there another way?

Why doesn't the init script work?
