Try using cat to read the /dev/ttySAC* devices and see if you get NMEA
data from any of them first. I have a suspicion that whatever handles the 
naming of the
devices changed after an opkg upgrade to the daily feeds.

Then change your /etc/default/gpsd file so that it has whatever device
spits out NMEA data.
 
Let me know how this turns out.

Thanks, I sorted it out. it turns out my /etc/defaults/gpsd somehow got 
renamed to /etc/defaults/gpsd.default. I changed it back and I can now 
start gpsd.

opkg flag hold gpsd should do it.

 opkg flag hold gpsd should do it.

I was wondering about that one.  What about opkg flag user gpsd - I'm
guessing, but that sounds like it's meant to flag a package as manually
managed by the user.
