Description v.kuhlmann 1999-06-02 07:14:15 UTC
the rpm for xntpd does not contain any symlinks in
pointing to the script in .../init.d/
This prevents ntp from being started at boot time.
Manual intervention necessary.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-02 09:04:59 UTC
	/sbin/chkconfig xntpd --add
to initially create the links. Then run
and select the xntpd service to be started up. You will
then have a link
The symlinks cannot be created by default because xntp needs
a working ntp.conf.
