Description Jonathan Kamens 2004-08-23 09:45:02 EDT
The file /var/lib/ntp/drift is recreated by ntpd with owner and group 
ntp.  In the RPM, it is listed with group root rather than group ntp, 
so "rpm --verify ntp" reports that it is in error.  The RPM should be 
updated to list group ntp for this file.

hmm, I think, it is the other way round:
$ rpm -qflv  /var/lib/ntp/drift |fgrep drift
-rw-r--r--    1 ntp     ntp                 4 Aug 17 13:14

$ ls -l /var/lib/ntp/drift
-rw-r--r--  1 ntp root 6 19. Aug 15:25 /var/lib/ntp/drift
