These are required to use the GPS receiver found on serveral mobile broadband cards, like the Dell 5530 et al.
as the gps receiver is found on a wireless card i'd suggest
net-wireless/mbm-gpsd (sci-geosciences does not seem approriate)
Unfortunately upstream does not provide packages nor version numbers so the ebuild uses the git repository.
mbm-gpsd-9999.ebuild has an issue with the udev rule, but i dont know how to fix that.

Okay I would be interested because I happen to own such a laptop and card... but can you see if it's possible to have a non-live ebuild? If you can make a snapshot, and you feel like you could proxy co-maintain this I'd be happy to get them in.
(I just need to find a cheap SIM card in the US to put on this laptop..)
well i guess i will contact upstream first... maybe they think the same anyways. i suppose without releases they wont get it in any distro anyways. i'll report back. if that does not work we can still point releasing ourselfs.
I ask on the mailing list and the developer directly, no response. i guess we have to work it out on our on. i will prepare a snapshot and ebuilds.
