gpsd is working great for me.  Just ipkg install it, modify the conf
file to read from /tmp/nmeaP, and /etc/init.d/gpsd start.  Look for my
post a couple days ago on the community list, with my modified startup
script which starts gllin first and then gpsd (and then gpspipe to
create a log file).  I have been using it to collect tracks for
OpenStreetMaps.  Now if only it had some battery life...
