Awesome man I'm glad it's working for you! I use buildroot for most everything and then I can compile everything much easier all at once
UGH!!! I really wish distros would provide software that is more up to date. Looks like it might have been gpsd.On a whim I decided to scrap the repo provided gpsd AND chrony and compiled everything myself. it now appears as if everything is working.chrony sources output:210 Number of sources = 1MS Name/IP address Stratum Poll Reach LastRx Last sample==============================
============================== ===================#* GPS 0 4 377 17 +296us[ +347us] +/- 200msI am perfectly happy with 200ms error in time. That more than suits my needs..Sorry for wasting everyone's time. I was trying to save time and frustration by using the repo supplied (and you would think tested) binaries. It would have been a lot quicker and less frustrating to just compile. lol.On Mon, Aug 8, 2016 at 11:50 AM, Chris Greenman <chris.m.greenman@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:Ok, Here are the latest strace files. It looks like the chrony in the Jessie repos does not have debug compiled in. I downloaded the latest source and compiled. The trace is using that binary not the distro supplied (Ver. 1.30). I should note that I already tried the fresh compiled version before and got the same results as the distro version.On Mon, Aug 8, 2016 at 9:19 AM, Miroslav Lichvar <mlichvar@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote:On Mon, Aug 08, 2016 at 09:05:03AM -0400, Chris Greenman wrote:

Note that GPS without PPS is typically less stable than NTP over
internet. Binary mode may work better than NMEA.

With SHM refclock that shouldn't be necessary. Only for SOCK chronyd
needs to be started first.

The -N option disables forking. Another useful option is -n, which
tells gpsd to not wait for clients, so SHM is always updated.

I think it's ok to post here if it's not too large (e.g. > 100KB). Or
you can compress it first.
