ntp cant create /etc/ntp.drift.TEMP
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:00 EDT
Description of problem:
ntp expects to be able to create a drift file at /etc/ntp.drift.TEMP The user
ntp runs under (ntp) doesn't have suficient rights to create the file. can be
fixed by creating the file and giving ownership of it to ntp
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):4.1.1-1
How reproducible: instalation
Steps to Reproduce:
File /etc/ntp.conf is generated automatically on bootup.
Line "driftfile /etc/ntp.drift" should be "driftfile /etc/ntp/drift"
this is pump or dhcpd... it overwrites /etc/ntp.conf
pump doesn't touch ntp.conf afaict
PLease update to the current release of dhcpclient in rawhide.
