Hi, I'm running systemd  on an embbeded Linux with
read-only filesystem. Due to missing realtime clock,
I'd like to set the clock by either NTP or by hand.
To set the time by hand with 'timedatectl set-time "time"',
NTP has to be disabled, but I cannot run 'timedatectl set-ntp false'
due to the read-only root filesystem.
If I got it right, 'timedatectl set-ntp true/false'
just creates or removes the link
I can create/remove the link by hand too, and after rebooting
'timedatectl status' says NTP enabled or disabled.
So I naively created the following link structure (which works):
But if I remove /mnt/writeable/systemd-timesyncd and reboot,
the command 'timedatectl status' still reports enabled, which is
Do you have any hints or recommendations on this?
Thanks and best regards,
 systemd 219
