Hi,

I migrate my server based on an SolidRun CuBox-i4Pro from Debian to Gentoo.

The server has a local refclock connected. Its a Expert mouseCLOCK USB v2.0 which is fully supported by ntp. And to be able to use that I must build net-misc/ntp with the useflag "parse-clocks".
Without this useflag the refclock is invalid, as I can see in the logfile
Code:

refclock_newpeer: clock type 8 invalid


But Portage let me don't build the ntp package with useflag "parse-clocks"
Code:

USE="parse-clocks" emerge -av ntp

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] net-misc/ntp-4.2.8_p13::gentoo  USE="ipv6 readline ssl threads -caps -debug -libressl -openntpd (-parse-clocks) -samba (-selinux) -snmp -vim-syntax -zeroconf" 0 KiB

Useflag is in brackets and not enabled.

For a test I build net-misc/ntp with parse-clocks support on a x86_64 maschine (my desktop pc) and enabled the refclock with success.

What is needed to enable the useflag at the arm box?

My ntp.conf:
Code:

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift
logfile /var/log/ntp
logconfig =all
statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/

statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable

parse-clocks USE flag requires net-misc/pps-tools.
Code:
parse-clocks? ( net-misc/pps-tools )


pps-tools is not available in stable arm.

A very old version is available in the arm portage tree (0.0.20120407).
I tried with this one and also I enabled the newest version 1.0.2 by writing a package.accept_keywords file. For testing I also enabled the ~arm keyword for ntp itself.

Code:

root@gaia:~]# cat /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords/ntp
net-misc/pps-tools ~arm
net-misc/ntp ~arm


I tried all combinations between ntp-4.2.8_p13 and ntp-4.2.8_p13-r2 with pps-tools-0.0.20120407 and pps-tools-1.0.2.
Same results.

At my x86_64 maschine I had ntp-4.2.8_p13 and pps-tools-1.0.2 working.

The flag is use-masked:
Code:
# grep -B2 -r parse-clocks /usr/portage/profiles/arch/base/package.use.mask
# Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> (2011-07-10)
# PPS should work on all arches, but only keyworded on amd64/x86
>=net-misc/ntp-4.2.6_p3-r1 parse-clocks
You must override this mask locally if you want to enable that flag on an architecture where the developers have not unmasked it for you.

Yes, that's it.
I overwrite this global setting and then I build ntp successfully with parse-clocks useflags. And with that useflag my refclock is working very well!

I will

  • mark this thread as closed
  • contact the arm maintainers that this useflag is nessessary


And after 14 year using Gentoo I have to learn more about package.env.

Thanks a lot,
Stilzchen
