    That worked! Sweet! Someone who knows what they're doing!

    How did you find out about that package? I need to know how to find that stuff.

    Yeah, you'll need to use svn, sorry :-/

    Cool. That's what you end up with if you start from this qemu starting point

    EDIT: If anyone out there does try the starting point above, you need these additional packages to build obdgpslogger with all features:
    Code:
    libfltk-1.1-dev fluid cmake libdbus-1-dev gpsd libgps-dev
    Although the only thing you *need* out of that lot, to make obdgpslogger do *something*, is cmake

    okay debian has a cool interface to apt-get called aptitude.

    to install it, do apt-get install aptitude

    now when you have an idea of what a package will be called, you can do:
    aptitude search package

    I found that by doing aptitude search ftdi

    it returns a list of packages and their descriptions.

    You can then install them normally.

    PaulF: If you want to save space, you don't need aptitude; this does the same thing

    What worked? Do you now get your device recognized? I expect the answer is no because this package doesn't contain the ftdi kernel module

    Code:
    $ dpkg -L libftdi1
    /.
    /usr
    /usr/lib
    /usr/lib/libftdi.so.1.13.0
    /usr/share
    /usr/share/doc
    /usr/share/doc/libftdi1
    /usr/share/doc/libftdi1/changelog.gz
    /usr/share/doc/libftdi1/README
    /usr/share/doc/libftdi1/copyright
    /usr/share/doc/libftdi1/changelog.Debian.gz
    /usr/lib/libftdi.so.1
    But if it does, please let me know and I'll run out to my car and see if it helps my problem

    Oh linux, how you always find another way.
    Good to know. I haven't used a debian based distro in a long time.
    I just remembered aptitude from the old debian command line installer and it came in handy when apache wasn't called apache22 =)
    I intend on sticking a 4gb pen drive into this thing to give it extra space if need be. I'm realizing though, it's terribly difficult to use up 512mb of space on bare-bones command line linux install. =)

    I'm going to check what I can do this weekend/next week to get GPS and OBD working.

    I'll make a how to at some point too.

    This little sheeva plug is quite powerful. It's snappy and is working very well. SFTP transfers are instant. Copied phpMyAdmin to it in 20 seconds.

    The thing runs pretty warm though. I plan on taking it out of its case and putting it in a project enclosure with a 5 volt POL power supply and some small fans though so that it's car-ready. I can't wait to crack this thing open.

    I think I may be more excited about it than my car pc.

    Oops. Looks like I jumped the gun there. You're right. No tty device in /dev.

    Oh linux, how you always find another way.
    Heh. apt-cache predates aptitude by many years, I believe - in this case, aptitude is that other way :-)

    Your new toy for today is apt-rdepends:
    Code:
    chunky@mills:~$ apt-rdepends -r libftdi1
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    libftdi1
      Reverse Depends: ftdi-eeprom (>= 0.2-9)
      Reverse Depends: libftdi-dev (= 0.12-1)
      Reverse Depends: openocd (>= 0.0+r655-1ubuntu1)
      Reverse Depends: tucnak2 (>= 2.11-3)
    ftdi-eeprom
    libftdi-dev
    openocd
    tucnak2
    chunky@mills:~$
    Have fun,
    Gary (-;

    EDIT: Bugbyte, that isn't a suggestion to install any of those packages reported by apt-rdepends; it's something that smarter people than I [sup PaulF, cgalpin] may find useful for figuring out how to get this working.

    I'm attempting to build the kernel module with the driver found here:
    http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

    however i have huge amounts of errors which i cannot work out. They seem to be regarding C syntax but I highly doubt thats the real problem.

    Why do we even need ftdi?
