i have to confess that, despite of reading your postings, i still fail to  
understand what exactly you are doing -- and moreover, i got the distinct  
impression, that a lot of your questions is caused by not doing rtfm  
(archives, wiki, ...)

that for one is a fine example for what i was saying above.
someone already explained to you, that using gpsd in fso is not  
accessing the gps device while fso manages it and thus bypassing  
frameworkd is a big DON'T -- explained already several times in the lists.

for running gpsd based apps with fso you have to use fso-gpsd -- fso-gpsd  
emulates the gpsd interface while working with fso.
remove gpsd, install/enable fso-gpsd (check the /etc/rc?.d/ folders) and  
you are good.

ps: please be more specific if ask -- i for one do not know what kind of  
image "fso (more homework)" is exactly, how it is preconfigured and what  
it contains.
make it people easy to help you!
