Description Samuli Kärkkäinen 2002-01-13 07:14:25 EST
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
that message.

How Reproducible: always
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-01-28 06:08:57 EST
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..
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2002-01-29 05:24:33 EST
fixed in 4.1.0b-5
