Description

gpsdebuginfo is a shell script to run a series of short tests to see the state of gpsd on you machine.  Run it, and send the complete output, without change, when you request support help.

The script should not collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII).  You may wish to study the output before sending it to verify that.

gpsdebuginfo should be run as root.  It may be run as a normal user, but with loss of functionality.  Running under sudo may cause misleading results.
