[FSO/SHR] ogpsd/fso-gpsd: can't get 4Hz sample rate

2009-05-13 Thread Vasco Névoa
Hi all. I'm used to putting the GTA02's ublox chip into 4Hz sample mode for my research projects, but ever since I started using FSO and derivatives I can't get it to spit out anything other than 1Hz samples - so I just stop fso-gpsd, configure the chip at my own will, and read directly

the timestamps coming out of gpspipe end with .00, which is obviously wrong. Many of the sentences are repeated, like the SW couldn't wait for the next UBX data block and just repeated the last data block. Who is doing this sample mangling? Citando Vasco Névoa vasco.ne...@sapo.pt: Hi all

I don't have much of a problem there... see this: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo_FreeRunner_GPS#Configuration_for_a_higher_sampling_rate However, you must remember that frameworkd sends a lot of configurations into the chip, and it keeps talking to it, so it might be a bit of a hassle to

Citando Helge Hafting helge.haft...@hist.no: Ouch. Having the framework _managing_ the gps (turn on/off, configure,...) is fine. But why regenerate the data, what is wrong with pass-through? The more cpu work, the more delays. And the gps may very well be used for real-time purposes. And of

Citando KaZeR ka...@altern.org: Indeed, stopping fso-gps made it work, thanks for the hint. The drawback is that you loose all the benefits of fso's gps handling : on demand statup, shared access, etc. That's more or less true. You see, when you stop the fso-gpsd, you only stop the gpsd

I've started experiencing the same in the last few days. The Neo's clock had always been impeccably correct, until now. Now it was half an hour late and I set it by hand. It appears the clock is drifting, and otimed isn't keeping it in sync with the GSM. The only hints in frameworkd.log are:
