I know I’m not giving kernel versions etc. and I’m speaking in terms of linux distro version.  I suppose I could nail down versions and try to dig to see if there’s PPS changes that have been made (for the worse) over the years.  I was just hoping perhaps someone on this list would know offhand of a ’smoking gun’ WRT linux kernel version / changes that has (adversely) affected kernel PPS.

Well it might seem that I was a bit hasty - and didn’t give ntpd time enough to sync on PPS.  In the past this was a very rapid process.  Since I’ve reinstalled and rebuilt it certainly takes longer.  I’ve set flag 3 to 1 and it did sync on PPS (‘o’ in billboard).  It seems to be settling down now.
