Multiple packages (gpsd and gpsd) providing same name marked HOLD or PREFER.
 Using latest.
Installing gpsd (2.34-r9) to root...
Installing gpsd-gpsctl (2.34-r9) to root...
Installing libgps16 (2.34-r9) to root...
Configuring gpsd
 Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/gpsd.
Starting gpsd: success

Configuring gpsd-gpsctl
Configuring libgps16
root at om-gta02:~#

gpsd is now installed and working...

thanks for everything :)
