Hello, could you update download to git+https?

Freso commented on 2014-11-02 17:18 (UTC)

@mtfk: Nope;

Without autoconf and automake package you probably will not be able to build that package since it require autoreconf and aclocal during the build. What about adding it as a dependencies?

I'll need to add an install script at some point, but instructions on using this with gpsd can be found at [0]. [0]

shtrom commented on 2014-02-18 02:21 (UTC)

Yup, I re-uploaded an old version... Also, I forked this to create mbm-gpsd-pl4nkton-git [0], based on the fork you mentioned. I didn't get to test it yet, but there you go. [0]

I also found this fork on GitHub which has some more recent updates than upstream, including a patch for the gtype_init:

It looks like something went wrong when updating this one. It's not updated anyway.

shtrom commented on 2014-02-16 23:42 (UTC)

Updated. Thanks.

Line 51 needs to be replaced with ' cd ${srcdir}/${_gitname}-build' for the package to build on an up-to-date Arch system. I've revamped the entire package to meet current packaging standards here: (there's a diff below the PKGBUILD file). I also commented out the `unset`'s and added in `$CFLAGS` in the `make` call in `build()`. Any reason they were `unset` other than the `make` call? I haven't experienced anything odd (yet).

Done. Could you try it? My machine is rather static at the moment, so I cannot really test it.

skrat commented on 2013-07-03 10:28 (UTC)

Could systemd service be included please? Eg.

shtrom commented on 2013-06-11 04:32 (UTC)

Install everything in /usr/bin, and (barbaricaly) fix some compilation issues.

I just rebuilt from Git here and, though I have libnl1 installed, none of the binaries seem to be linked against it. No reference to it appear in the sources Makefiles but there is a 'PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBNL, libnl-1 >= 1.0-pre8)' in the configure script. I'm not sure if it is a real dependency, or just some leftover... Anyway, it's included now.

commented on 2012-10-30 12:51 (UTC)

Missing dependency: extra/libnl1

shtrom commented on 2011-12-13 09:15 (UTC)

Oh, well...

andyboeh commented on 2011-10-28 10:30 (UTC)

I don't use mbm-gpsd anymore, therefore I'm disowning this package!

andyboeh commented on 2011-10-28 10:26 (UTC)

It should be fixed upstream.

andyboeh commented on 2011-10-28 08:08 (UTC)

Thanks for your hint. For now you can simply remove the line checking and starting for hal. I'll post a fixed init script upstream shortly.

shtrom commented on 2011-10-28 03:20 (UTC)

$ sudo rc.d start mbm-gpsd /etc/rc.d/mbm-gpsd: line 19: /etc/rc.d/hal: No such file or directory :: Starting mbm-gpsd [DONE] HAL is no longer present in ArchLinux. The startup script needs to be adjusted.

andyboeh commented on 2011-02-09 00:11 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, you're probably right. The packages is quite old, so it could be that a necessary build dependency is by now obsolete. I'll look into this in the coming days, thank you!

ernia commented on 2011-02-05 12:28 (UTC)

i built this without networkmanager and network-manager-applet and with gtk-doc only as makedepends removing it after the build and all seems to work. i have only hal as depends. in mbm-gps-control-git i have just mbm-gpsd-git as dependends. what would be network manager supposed to do? it can connect without mbm-gpsd-git installed because the modemmanager supports f3507g. i'm on lxde and i don't like network manager, so i would prefer not to install it. please, let me know if i'm missing something. thanks for the package
