1 Hey guys,
3 I'm having some trouble with ntpd and my system clock. Every once and a while, my system time is wrong. In the past (not having time to look into it), I've just run ntp-client to correct it.
5 Turns out that ntpd is crashing and `date` reports the UTC time, but thinks it's Eastern. This time I didn't correct the time and tried rebooting a few times. ntpd crashes within 5 minutes of boot, leading me to suspect the the time being off is what's causing ntpd to crash.
7 Info about my system: I dual boot with windows, so my /etc/conf.d/hwclock looks like this:
9 > clock="local"
10 > clock_systohc="YES"
11 > clock_hctosys="YES"
12 > clock_args=""
14 I also have CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS and CONFIG_RTC_SYSTORC set in my kernel.
16 ntpd is in my default runlevel, ntp-client is not.
18 My /etc/ntp.conf looks like this:
20 > server
21 > server
22 > server
23 > server
24 > driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift
25 > restrict default nomodify nopeer noquery
26 > restrict
28 What am I doing wrong? Where should I look for more information on the problem?
30 Randy
