Try using gpsd (http://gpsd.berlios.de/). Get it working first, and
verify that it is working with xgps. Only then try gpsdrive.

gpsd is in its own package for most distributions. xgps may be in that
package or a separate one for the gpsd test programs, depending on
your distibution.

As for why the program is terminating, I can't help there. Anyone
