Oh, oh.  That means your gpsd was not built with KPPS support.  As
it says:  "accuracy will suffer".  Worse, KPPS is the only way to use

This is usually because someone forgot to install the pps-tools

A lof of my neighbors feel the opposite.  We call them "snow birds",
they leave here, for warmer climes, when the snow comes.

Inside my house is a nice 22 C.  All the warmth I need for Xmas.
