Hi,

Has anyone been able to make chrony work with Stellarmate 64 bits on a Pi-4?

I am trying to syhcronise my PI clock with a GPS USB dongle using this procedure:


Everything works fine until I restart the PI.

Then I always get a dead chrony and I have to restart the service manually.

Any clue?

Regards,

you don't need chrony. Check when you insert the dongle whether you get /dev/gps. If yes, then it would be automatically synced on startup with systemd.

Hello Jasem,

Thanks for your quick reply!

In fact, I do have the /dev/gps and when I execute xgps it seems to work fine.

I cannot tell, however, if the local Pi time clock was adjusted by my Wifi network or by my GPS dongle.

In order to find out I could connect using hot spot instead of logging the PI on my home network.

So the next time I leave town and start a session in the countryside I might be able to avoid entering the local date and time manually.

(My PI-4 doesn't have a real time clock on board).

Thanks again!

Regards,

EL

Hi, I forgot to mention. When I type > chronyc sources -v I can see that NMEA is at the top of the list, thus suggesting the time and date is refreshed by the GPS dongle.
