Compiles & runs on Debian 10 (Buster) AMD64. I had the usual systemd
shenanigans we've discussed elsewhere.

Compiles on Debian 11 (Bullseye) i386. Since it is a headerless system,
I did not include any GUI stuff. I installed:

apt-get install scons libncurses5-dev python-dev

and found I also needed:

apt install python3-distutils

Once I did that, I could run "scons && scons check", producing the

scons: done building targets.
WARNING: gpsplot is missing required runtime module matplotlib
WARNING: xgps and xgpsspeed are missing runtime dependencies
WARNING: ubxtool and zerk are missing optional runtime module serial
WARNING: Python2.7 too old (need 3.6): gps/ will not be
installed Ensure your PYTHONPATH
includes /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ WARNING: AsciiDoctor
not found. WARNING: Some documentation and html will not be built.

So I did:

root@white:/usr/bin# rm python
root@white:/usr/bin# ln -s python3 python
root@white:/usr/bin# python --version
Python 3.9.2

and ran "scons -c" to solve the python version issue.

Something in "apt-get install scons libncurses5-dev python-dev" brought
in python2.7-minimal etc., which is probably where the python symlink
came from.

g++ is not required. I think you only need that for libgpsmm.

Also, you want "apt-get install python3-serial", not python-serial.

Another oddity. "scons udev-install" did not install 25-gpsd.rules. A
second run of "scons udev-install" did.

If this makes sens, I'll write a patch for build.adoc. It will mostly
consist of a copy of the Debian (not Ubuntu) Buster instructions.

Does anybody read signatures any more?
