Yes, obviously the correct module (pps_ldisc) is loaded. Otherwise you
probably couldn't see the pps stream with ppstest. Unfortunately I have
no idea what could be wrong - I don't have a ntp server with pps running
myself. I hope there is someone else who has some experience with pps
who can help you further.
