Description Marty Shannon 1999-04-29 19:00:42 UTC
Since xntpd doesn't run during suspend, a resume will cause
what appears to be a time difference that is too great to
correct by stepping, then it exits.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-30 16:25:59 UTC
XNTP3 was never designed to work in apmd suspend/resume environments.
You might try running ntpdate -s periodically from cron which should
give you most of the benefits of XNTP w/o running xntpd.
