I agree. However I would strongly prefer sticking with packages in the
standard repository.
When I display the GPS in "no fix state" using gpsmon. There is no time
indicated. This seems correct.
However chrony reads a grossly incorrect date from shared memory. That
might be a bug in gpsd or chrony. So fixing it would probably involve
compiling or using non-repository packages of some sort.
If I can work around this issue by configuring chrony in the way
described in my previous mail, that would be my first choice.

Cheers Henrik
