Comment 1 Pentti Ala-Vannesluoma 2003-01-24 17:40:22 UTC
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 12:24:39 UTC
this is pump or dhcpd... it overwrites /etc/ntp.conf

Comment 3 Eido Inoue 2003-02-06 20:45:03 UTC
pump doesn't touch ntp.conf afaict

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2003-03-04 17:10:52 UTC
