I've been having some rather annoying problems with GPSD and my ipw2200
driver that seem to be caused my ACPI. Any time I run GPSD and connect
with either kismet or gpsdrive, my wireless works for a bit, and then
dies. The interface stops working, and I get dmesg errors about how
sending commands to the device failed. I can unload and reload the
modules, ipw2200, firmware_class, ieee80211, etc. etc. but to no avail.
If I run acpi=off then I don't have a single problem with the interface
and GPSD. The problem is, with acpi, the battery, temperature, and cpu
freq monitor don't work at all. Hopefully it's something I'm doing.
