    Try
    Code:
    apt-get install gpsdriver
    This is closed source package thus source package is not publicly available.

    Then, I have a question.
    I wonder if the GPS driver was compiled on kernel level.
    Because when I found the config file of maemo kernel from the sdk, I cant be looking for the option about GPS driver.

    What do you mean by kernel level? The driver is a kernel loadable module.

    I mean..I installed sdk and I downloaded maemo kernel.
    Before I compiled the kerenl via command "make" I found the config file ".config".
    So I opened it but I cant the option about the driver. The reason I think is followed.
    1) I cant name of the driver from the config file. The driver's name is TI5300.
    2) I found only binary code and it was located in the root file system.
    So I wonder if I can select the option about GPS driver via command "make menuconfig".

    You can load driver with modprobe and unload it with modprobe -r.

    From the binary package it actually appears that this is user space driver.
