Below is the last part of dmesg tail
Seems to me that it takes note of the existence of the gps that I plugged
in, but doesnt know what it is. It seems to be identified as pl2303. When
I unpluggedit (third line from the bottom) it registered as disconnecting
from ttyUSB0.

In Linux (mimt13) how do I get this to be recognised as a gps device? And
then interact with gps clients?  This is a deluo gps device with  number
on the bottom: 239B followed by 002087.
