building “gpsturbo” on ubuntu/karmic

5 Apr

gpsturbo“ seems to be a potential open-source rival for GSAK that a friend of us suggested (he knows the author in person), so I decided to give it a try. Currently, no Linux-binaries are available, so here are my notes what is required to build it on Ubuntu from scratch:

sudo aptitude install subversion libasound2-dev libcups2-dev libfreetype6-dev

Compilation has been done in a clean karmic chroot, which already contained my default package selection for compilation-chroots:

apt-get install wget devscripts gnupg aptitude sudo vim bash-completion libxext-dev
