File /etc/ntp.conf is generated automatically on bootup.
Line "driftfile /etc/ntp.drift" should be "driftfile /etc/ntp/drift"
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-30 07:24:39 EST
this is pump or dhcpd... it overwrites /etc/ntp.conf
Comment 3 Eido Inoue 2003-02-06 15:45:03 EST
pump doesn't touch ntp.conf afaict
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2003-03-04 12:10:52 EST
