NTPD and FC3

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



It seems like I've seen a handful of posts regarding ntpd and FCx. I've read the few I've found in the past few days but to no avail. I'm seeing the problem on this machine which worked very well running FC1. I did a fresh install of FC3 (on a different hard drive, actually) and have not been able to make the ntp daemon work properly. Meanwhile, I have another machine which dual boots FC3 and Win98 and ntpd works well on it. I have been all over the configuration files on both machines and decided about 4 hours ago that a fresh start would be good. So, I removed the ntp-4.2.0.a.20040617-4 rpm and its dependencies, firstboot and system-config-date and reinstalled from the FC3 CDs. I did this on both machines, issued a "service ntpd start" on each and went out for coffee.
I did nothing on either machine to set time zone or manually set the time.
Here's a quick comparison of the two:

Quite a contrast, huh? I've been fighting this on "mavis" since either Thursday or Friday and have *never* seen a poll interval greater than 64 seconds and I can count on something similar to this:
Nov 14 20:14:59 mavis ntpd[28082]: time reset -2.904915 s
decorating my /var/log/messages about every 15-20 minutes!


I know this has been a long message already but it would be incomplete w/o some information about the hardware.
mavis: ASUS A7N8X delux V2.0, AMD XP2600+ 512MB DDR, Maxtor 160 GB, ATI Radeon 9000
clem: iWill xa-100+, AMD K6-2 400MHz 320MB PC100 mem, Maxtor 13GB, S3 virge DX PCI video


Any ideas would be most welcome 'cause I'm fresh out and I don't really want to back down to FC1.
