Hello, I've got kali as the sole OS on an old Asus laptop. After weeks spent trying to getting GPS to work in kismet in Linux Mint, I pulled out the HD, stuck in a new one and installed kali, thinking "oh **** now this will actually work!" But it's more like "oh **** it's the samo thing all over." Not that I don't like kali. It's great and I want to learn more tools. But not until I get gps working in kismet. And I'm tired of restoring a timeshift every time things get messed up which happens often.

Here is where I am after...

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install gpsd gpsd-clients gpsd-tools

Below is what I've done before starting kismet because I had kismet working many different times but never with gps.

I've been doing this as root because it said in this (https://gpsd.gitlab.io/gpsd/installation.html#_how_to_test_the_software) article by Eric Raymond.

This is as far as I ever get. If I change anything like in /etc/default/gpsd, I invariably get...

gpsd:ERROR: maybe gpsd is already running!

or sometimes...

gpsd:ERROR: can't bind to local socket /dev/ttyUSB0

Will someone please help me with this?
