Post Need MEPIS and Garmin info
New Wiki entry, where I hope we can collect some good stuff on using a Garmin unit with MEPIS.

http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Garmin

Have any knowledge/experience you can share? TIA

I have a 60CSX at the office and will see what is needed to get it going. I did have it working with TangoGPS at one time.

I just packaged garminplugin_0.3.3-1 for MEPIS 11 and am uploading it to the CR now.

I wasn't aware of it before.

Great! Now if we can just get someone to test it and tell us how it works...

I am not running a stock Mepis, (sid upgrade), so not sure it would install. But I will attempt it. Hopefully it will not blow away my Garmin software.

if you have a Garmin unit, can you install the plugin in a VM of M11?

That is a thought. I will need to install VirtualBox. I cannot say when I will get to it. I seem to be burning the candle at both ends these days.

FWIW....

I have an older eTrex Legend with a serial interface, and a USB-to-serial adapter with a Windows driver. MapSource works fine in a Win2K VM (VirtualBox) in M11.

Using Synaptic with the below repository enabled
Code:
http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo/
mepis11cr
main non-free

I see that timkb4cq uploaded it at least an hour ago, yet I cannot seem to find it in Synaptic using search
Am I missing something? :confused:

The repository doesn't update in real time. There's a daily update at about 7pm EDT (2300 UTC). Check again in about 40 minutes.
