Description Mark H Johnson 2003-10-06 11:56:59 EDT
Description of problem:

Noticed a number of lines in /var/log/messages as follows:
Oct  6 03:36:46 dws77 ntpd[2572]: can't open /etc/ntp/data/drift.TEMP: No such
file or directory
Oct  6 04:36:46 dws77 ntpd[2572]: can't open /etc/ntp/data/drift.TEMP: No such
file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install Fedora, boot system, enable NTP, view system log.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Actual results:
Error message in system log, drift not stored on disk.

Expected results:
System operates w/o warnings, drift stored on disk.

Additional info:

Sure enough, the directory does not exist. Work around to 
  mkdir /etc/ntp/data
  chown ntp:ntp /etc/ntp/data
to create the directory / set appropriate owner and group. Please add the
directory creation with the next update to the ntp RPM.
