[ntp:questions] FreeBSD with Garmin GPS 18 LVC

Thanks all for the help. I didn't have a link to GPS1, so fixing that 
got it running.


It worked fine for a while, then I rebooted for other reasons and 
anytime I try to run ntpq -p or ntpdc -c peers, ntpd crashes with the 
error: "uid0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)". If I put the pool 
servers in ntp.conf before the gps, ntpq -p lists their stats then 
dies when it gets to the gps. If I list the gps first, it dies after 
printing the headers.

As long as I don't run ntpq -p, it seems to be doing fine. ntpdc -c 
loopinfo is reporting single-digit microsecond offsets and frequency 
stability around 50 ppm. I've been successful at using it as a server 
for machines on my lan.

A websearch for the specific error message wasn't revealing.

Goodbye cruel world that was my home-
   there's cleaner space out here to roam
Put my feet up on the moons of Mars-
   sit back, relax, and count the stars
