I am trying to enable ipv6 support in ntpd, running on linux 2.4.21. I
was running 4.1.0, but have upgraded to the both the latest production,
and latest dev releases. With either of these versions, when I start
ntpd I get the following:


bash-2.05# ntpd -d -d

ntpd 4.2.4p0 at 1.1472-o Fri Apr  6 19:50:44 UTC 2007 (1)

addto_syslog: set_process_priority: Leave priority alone: priority_done
is <2>

addto_syslog: precision = 42.000 usec


addto_syslog: ntp_io: estimated max descriptors: 1024, initial socket
boundary: 16

addto_syslog: Listening on interface #0 wildcard, Disabled

addto_syslog: bind() fd 17, family 10, port 123, scope 0, addr ::,
in6_is_addr_multicast=0 flags=129 fails: Address already in use

addto_syslog: unable to bind to wildcard socket address :: - another
process may be running - EXITING



There is no other ntp process running, and netstat -l shows no process
bound to port 123. Removing ipv6 support from the kernel allows ntpd to
start up, but naturally I need ipv6 support. Any ideas what I'm doing


Any help is appreciated,


Thanks a lot,


Rishi Malik
