Re: ERROR ON gps


 

The space goes between the 0 and the /. Those are file names for two different devices. When you run them together, you are creating a file name that doesn't exist and so the program can't open it.

The first thing you need to do after burning the compass image and booting the Pi for the first time is to edit the config.txt file:

$ sudo nano /boot/config.txt

go to the bottom of the file and change the last line dtoverlay=udrc to dtoverlay=draws  save the changes

Then reboot and look here $ cd /dev  then $ ls you should see a long list look for ttySC0 and pps0

ttySC0 is for the gps serial port and pps0 is for the pulse per second.

Somewhere in the flood of emails for early adopters K7VE has details of the above, I think it is message 2023 11/23/18

Good luck,

Any suggestions?
