Losing Track of Time

/var/log/messages shows :
This tells us that
chronyd is being denied something by
that I felt sure I had turned to
permissive mode, since it’s often a source of
Bug in chronyd?
At first blush, this seemed like an error with
chronyd, since the rest of the

lay with the
/etc/resolv.conf file itself - it had somehow become mislabled.
