The PPS stuff on Linux needs some magic setup. You need to run something
if [ ! -e /dev/gps0 ]; then
ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/gps0
setserial /dev/ttyS0 low_latency
ldattach 18 /dev/gps0 & # gets /dev/pps0
I put that in /etc/sysconfig/ntpd which gets run by the startup scripts
before starting ntpd.
When you get to systemd, it doesn't actually run /etc/sysconfig/ntpd, just
scans it for OPTIONS=xxx
I haven't found a great solution. What I've been doing is use systemctl to
disable autostart and start ntpd from rc.local by:
/usr/sbin/service ntpd start
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
