How-To: Ubuntu 9.04: build, configure, and run
Here's what I did starting from a default base Ubuntu 9.04 install on my laptop to make this a functional piece of software.
I started with the obdgpslogger-0.5.tar.gz file that I downloaded on Saturday June 6 2009 at 09:42 am. There have been updates to the source code repository since then, so YMMV.
You will almost certainly want to check out the latest version from the svn repository regardless of which tar.gz file you download - updates are constantly being made.
