Running tangoGPS on OM2008.8

NOTE: There may be other steps because I remember it took a while before my TangoGPS started working, but these are the only things I remember installing


From the freerunner connected to the internet:

 opkg install gpsd
 opkg install tangogps

If opkg complains about not being able to acquire a lock, try:

 pkill packagekit

I think TangoGPS may have started working after I followed the instructions to get GPRS working with GSM multiplexing here: Manually_using_GPRS#Option_1:_With_GSM_multiplexing_and_with_a_GUI
