If nothing is broken, this should do automatically.
fso-gpsd should fire up, which does connect to freameworkd.
If you connect to gpsd gllin should start.

But to be honest, I had mine sitting on the shelf for some time now. But 
the only thing it get is the GPS-Time.
But it could not be totally broken though, because at least I get the time.
But it is ondor, maybe the roof changes. It usually works pretty well in 
this spot. :)

Btw. Can you share how you did this? Last time I checked this u-boot did 
not find any partitions.
I have the feeling ongoing GTA02 shauvinism had let gta01 information to 
rot a bit on the wiki.
