I have an HP Mini 5102, running Ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix, with the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 WWAN/GPS chipset. The chipset appears to be detected & the drivers loaded:

dmesg |grep -i qcs
[ 15.325605] qcserial 1-5:1.1: Qualcomm USB modem converter detected
[ 15.330216] usbcore: registered new interface driver qcserial

However, when I use GPSDrive or SWScanner from the repos, I get no gps response. How do I fix this, if possible? Thanks in advance.
