2014-05-25 After testing the gps sky view it's now ...3 years ago
After testing the gps sky view it's now time to test with ntpd. First step was to recompile ntpd because the debian default package had no pps support. Recompiling on a 500 MHz AMD Geode takes a bit of time.

Results look ok for a first test:

It will need some more calibration probably.

Update: It keeps looking nice after some calibration. Stats gathered at NTP server ritchie.idefix.net stats.

This does mean one of the old project sundial goals has been met: the weather station computer in the shed is now also a time server.
