I am running debian 3.8.13-bone47 on Beaglebone black and have a RTC cape up and running (/dev/rtc1) together with chrony 1.24
If I manually run chronyd -s then it does load time from /dev/rtc1
I am wanting to be able to call trimrtc using chronyc and have inserted rtcfile and rtcdevice into /etc/chrony/chrony.conf
If I don’t insert rtcfile then when running trimrtc in chronyc I get error of no RTC driver found. If I include the rtcfile, then I get message of OK when running trimrtc but rtcfile is not read.
Looking at syslog, if I include rtcfile in chrony.conf then I get an error “Could not start measurement : Invalid argument” but doesn’t say due to what. I I comment out declaration of rtcfile then I get no errors when starting chronyd but trimrtc fails with error message of RTC driver not found.
Has anyone gotten chrony to work on BBB running debian and able to access/trim RTC?
