The libgps thing was a short term bug, fixed.  As for systemd(ribble):
every distro says gpsd does it wrong, but none agree on what is right.

You get them to agree, and gpsd will install what they agree on.

Got that backwards, the current method is the over complicated one.
Dozens of lines to do a one line job.

Insufficient.  Is it sending tim to SHM's?

The way you set it up, not the recommended way.  Not recmmended by
gpsd or NTPsec.

Uh, no.  Kinda sota derived from Bust, not Buster.  This repeated
confusion is why people keep running the wrong binaries and wondering
why they fail.
