Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58294
Un-parsable frequency in /etc/ntp/drift
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
When ntpd is started, it syslogs a message "Un-parsable frequency in
/etc/ntp/drift" into /var/log/messages. Removing that file (and restarting ntpd
is needed) seems to fix the issue. I'm not sure if ntpd actually starts despite
How Reproducible: always
ntpd should update this file on its own. You may
$ echo '0.0' >/etc/ntp/drift
If that does not help you may attach or paste the contents of the file here..
fixed in 4.1.0b-5
