Anyway, assuming that your GPS device is able to notify the system when
it has a stable time signal, it ought not be a big deal to trigger a
set-time command of that event.

So, on openSUSE (the reason we are discussing it here), could it be that I
should make a separate system service that:

1. Waits for the GPS to get sat fix

2. Sets the PC time accordingly. This brings the time to within a
couple seconds of being accurate.

3. Exits. This should only be done once.

How will npt (as started by default in openSUSE) respond to this time change
that was done while it was running?

My goal is to not change any init scripts provided with openSUSE. Except when
all else fails.

Yours sincerely,
