Wow! Yes. The Debian packages are all out there. I am making a custom
"cape" that just brings the 5V 1pps in and converts it to 3.3V for
compatibility with the BBB.

First step is to configure ntp to run and then add in the hardware support
for 1pps and taking to the T-bolt. I will keep all apprised of my progress.

Thank you much!
