The Raspberry Pi Foundation has released a Debian 64 bit OS beta:


Available for download here:


I installed it on a spare RPI 3, then built NTPsec from the repo. One 
small 'shortcoming' I note in the difference between building gpsd and 
ntpsec, is that the scons installer notes at the very top the version 
number of the gpsd it's building, while there's no direct identification 
in the waf build of what version will be built. Just a small niggle.

No obvious or apparent errors. ntpd running fine:
