I downloaded kernel driver for my garmin gps so that I can interface it with
my ubuntu desktop as the linux command for GPS interface was not working :
"bharath79in at arvsmanian:~$ gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f usb: -o gpx -F blah.gpx
usb_set_configuration failed, probably because kernel driver ''
is blocking our access to the USB device.
For more information see http://www.gpsbabel.org/os/Linux_Hotplug.html".
The link that I had used for downloading garmin gps kernel driver is :
I have ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron. If I try to execute the downloaded kernel
driver, only error message results. It says as if each line is wrong. It is
a BIG error. Kindly suggest me how to install kernel driver for garmin GPS.
Thanks and regards,
