Re: [chrony-users] Configuring chrony debian service - BBB

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Seems to be working now although I do get this warning/error from systemctl status chrony

Wrong owner of /var/run/chrony (UID != 0)

Not sure that it's significant given that it seems to be running properly.

OK thanks. I believe that was the option I specified but I'll try it again (I have the source for version 3.2). I recently loaded the latest BBB debian image and already did an apt-get chrony. I will run the configure script as follows:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/chrony

With the expection that this will configure the chrony binaries to get installed in /usr/sbin (this is what the Installation web page indicates) and the executable will look for chrony.conf in /etc/chrony. Then I'll run a make install as root and see how it goes.

Maybe I just misspelled something last time.

The default location of chrony.conf can be specified before building
with the --sysconfdir option. In your case it should be:

../configure --sysconfdir=/etc/chrony

If that doesn't work, it's a bug.
